Interesting Photo of the Day: Lighting Strikes Grand Canyon

Share this Article 

We’ve all seen photos of the Grand Canyon, but I’ll bet you’ve never seen one like this. Last year, Travis Roe captured this image of a lightning bolt striking the rim of the Grand Canyon. Roe submitted the image to the U.S. Department of Interior who released the image recently. The image has become one of their most viewed and liked photos of all time:
