french alp lightning
 
A very quiet summer evening in the French Alp mountains.

To our amazement, an enormous lightning storm is in progress some 15 kilometers west of us, with a flash of lightning every three seconds but without any thunder audible.
Not a sound to be heard, no trace of wind to be felt, just a star filled nightsky above us and natural fireworks in the distance.
