    Bolt From The Blue

    A jagged, white streak makes a sudden appearance, splitting the dark, ominous sky into two. The brilliance of the bolt finely juxtaposes the plain, overcast backdrop. Even the buildings' facades pale in comparison to the imposing beauty of nature - they seem to surround the bolt...
