Photo of the Year! Lightning Attack on Tower Bridge

It is one of the most iconic sites in London, but Tower Bridge became even more of a  pectacle during the stormy weather last week.

This exhilarating moment, where a flurry of lightning bolts came crashing down on the landmark, was captured by amateur photographer Daoud Fakhri while he was touring the capital during the wet and windy conditions.

He was testing out a new lens for his camera by taking pictures of the historic bridge on the River Thames, when the storm hit, creating this amazing scene against a backdrop of dark grey clouds. Mr Fakhiri claimed the shot was completely unplanned and ‘pure luck’.
