You know, the world takes on a completely different perspective when you're taking photographs at an incredibly high frame rate. The video below is by Tom Guilmette and it truly is stunning.
 

Now, how do you get to take photos of a Lion without getting eaten or by using a massive 800mm super telephoto zoom lens? You use a remote control car with a camera attached of course, cutely named Beetlecam.

Photographing lightning can provide some quite amazing results. Such photos generally require a tripod set-up and a slow shutter speed to capture multiple bursts of lightning as they leave their storm clouds and hit the earth. There are many different types of lightning, including the traditional single bolt hitting the ground, to sheet lightning between clouds, the commonly associated forked lightning as well as forms such as ball lightning and chain lightning, to name but a few.
