Photograph of near fatal lightning strike

This photograph was posted on Digg earlier today and it’s pretty damn amazing. There’s a lot of discussion about whether it’s a fake or not but the exif data in the image seems to indicate that it’s a legitimate photo.

“Within 0.5 seconds of me pressing the button, I had jumped at least 2 metres in the air, as I heard a tremendously loud crack of thunder, and see this amazingly bright beam of electricity right in front of me. I had then landed, grabbed the camera, and was inside the house within 2 seconds.”
