I set myself a goal that I will get a photo of a lightning strike in the antenna of One World before I leave New York. I had no idea how many times it happens or if it would even happen at all. First few attempts were proven to be more difficult than I though because with storms comes the rain and fog which basically cut the visibility to zero. So all I got were lightning strikes and no buildings. With patience and having alerts set in many weather apps I managed to catch the "perfect storm". The rain and fog moved towards the east but high clouds still remained and with a few lightning strikes I managed to catch a perfect one. This was done manually with me just pressing on a cable release since I did not have any triggers that would automatically detect lightning. Once in a lifetime.
