A bolt of lightning strikes the sea near Pula, Croatia. Amateur photographer and full time shipbuilder, Matija Sculac, 35, did not have to travel far to catch his favourite extreme weather - these lightning shows happened on his doorstep. Matija carefully monitors local weather each day for the slightest hint of a lighting storm and when one breaks he travels to his favourite spots to capture the action.
This is the striking moment when a lightning bolt appeared to shoot straight through a cloud over the breath-taking Kaieteur waterfall. The stunning photo was taken by Robert Harding next to the 820ft high waterfall in the former British territory of Guyana, South America.
