    "Eternal Lightning Fields, Venezuela. For ten hours each night for up to 160 nights per year -- This is a photo sequence containing 70 lightning, taken at Ikaria island during a severe thunderstorm that took place the night of the total lunar eclipse at June 15, 2011 by Chris Kotsiopoulos"

    "Relámpago del Catatumbo" (Catatumbo lightning) is a natural phenomenon located at the mouth of the Catatumbo river in Venezuela. Cloud to cloud lighting forms above the area 140-160 nights a year, for up to 10 hours a night. Lightning travels from cloud to cloud up to 280 times an HOUR. Several different explanations have been proposed for the near constantly lightning storm, including methane produced from local swamps, oil deposits, uranium in the bedrock and local air currents.

    In Venezuela, just above the mouth of the Catatumbo River, a lightning storm has been raging for at least 2 centuries. I know that sounds like science fiction, or some hackneyed fantasy villain's lair - but it's real. For 160 nights out of the year, the Catatumbo lightning strikes for 10 straight hours, at a rate of nearly 300 strikes per hour. Short of trees growing in the shape of a human skull or a good ol' screaming bog, that is the single best way Nature knows to tell you a place is cursed.

    This is another photo taken by one of our favorite nature photographers from Greece, Chris Kotsiopoulos. This is an image sequence containing 70 lightning shots, taken at Ikaria island during a severe thunderstorm. This storm took place on the night of the lunar eclipse (June 25, 2011) with the camera programmed to take a picture every twenty seconds for 83 minutes.

NIMBUS II: Artist Berndnaut Smilde: The clouds are generated using a smoke machine, but Smilde must carefully monitor a room's humidity and atmosphere in order to get the smoke to hang so elegantly, and with such life-like form. Backlighting is used to bring out shadows from within the cloud, to give it that look of a looming and ominous rain cloud. #Berndnaut_Smilde #Clouds
