Philippines lightning strike captured in dramatic mobile phone pictures
The amateur photos caught the moment a massive bolt of lightning hit Mandaluyong, near the capital Manila.
An amateur photographer’s remarkable pictures have captured the moment a bolt of lightning struck during a heavy storm in the Philippines.
The moment was captured on a mobile phone by university professor Nathan Daniel Sison as he looked out of his apartment in Mandaluyong, near the capital Manila.
Mr Sison told the Press Association: “It was taken unintentionally. I was just snapping the view.”
Only moments before, Mr Sison had captured an image showing the sunset when it “suddenly rained”.
The subsequent pictures, taken at 7pm local time on Tuesday, showed the bolt striking a building before creating a dramatic flash.
