Zzzzzt!  Bank of America Tower gets zapped by lightning with the Empire State Building looking on

I caught this Bank of America Tower lightning strike during the early evening of 8/18/11.   I’d never seen a direct hit on B of A’s lightning rod before, so it was pretty cool.

I can already hear the financial jokes rolling in about the irony of lightning striking the besieged Bank of America….

On Twitter I’ve  been accused of Photoshopping the lightning.  Wrong.  It was caught naturally with a my Canon EOS 60D still camera.  Anyone who follows me on Twitter and Flickr knows I love shooting lightning in video and images.
