WHERE: Berg Lake, B.C.
WHEN: May 2019
DETAILS: After hiking for two days, Matthew Picking and some friends arrived at B.C.’s Berg Lake campground, just before a forecasted storm rolled in. Along with a dozen other hikers, they watched as the storm strengthened and the lighting began. “I could tell it was a special moment, so I set up my camera for a long exposure, hoping to get lucky with a strike,” Picking says. “On my third attempt, I caught this shot!”
PRIZE: Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Pack
