16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Lightning Bolt Museo Soumaya

Mexico is the country where most people die because of lightning every year. I have been chasing thunderstorms in Mexico City for the last four years, the challenge is to capture lightning bolts as close as possible to landmarks of the city. My goal is to bring this natural phenomenon closer to the people to develop knowledge and awareness about the danger and beauty it represents.
