Photographer Michal Lucansky has taken what can only be described as one of the best lightning pictures we have ever seen.

The image was taken earlier this year near Martin in Slovakia, and consists of a 12 minute exposure.

Lucansky explains how the image was put together: "This photo is a result of stacking 24 photos in to one. So in fact it is a picture of 12 minutes from a storm in one picture. And the of course then some curves, shadow and highlights."
