A lightning strike gives a vivid backdrop to the iconic Eiffel Tower, while the Paris landmark is illuminated in vibrant blue lights. Amateur photographer Bertrand Kulik captured the shot which will appear in an exhibition titled “Lumieres celestes, lumieres des hommes”, in Issy L’eveque, Burgundy. It was taken 21:02 GMT, 28 July 2008 during a storm in the French capital. [Source: BBC]
