This is the striking moment when a lightning bolt appeared to shoot straight through a cloud over the breath-taking Kaieteur waterfall.
The stunning photo was taken by Robert Harding next to the 820ft high waterfall in the former British territory of Guyana, South America.
Combining light from the sun, lightning from the sky and water from the falls, it captures nature at its most dramatic.
