A forty-year wait

There may not be many in life worth waiting forty years for.

But American photographer Jay Fine said he had been waiting 40 years to get the picture above, which captures the moment a lighning bolt appearing to strike the Statue of Liberty in New York.

It is hard to say whether the picture is worth the wait, but it is definitely a masterstroke.

I mean the shooting. Not the lightning.

And how about another two pictures of lightning below, one taken above the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, the other taken in Zurich?

I wonder how long the photographers had waited for these ones?
