Damn, this is one gorgeous shot that encapsulates the recent spate of lightning storms in Singapore. Taken by local photographer Darren Soh, the image of lightning bolts crackling over Sembawang was snapped yesterday, from a vantage point facing the Straits of Johor. According to Soh, who’s been attempting to photograph lightning storms for years, it’s actually a layer of 12 photos made in under an hour.

Less than a day later, the picture has already gone viral, with thousands of shares on Facebook. Behold the magnificent sight below.
