Because of the influence of small or absent land masses in the vast stretches of the ocean, lightning is notably less frequent here in Ålesund than over larger landforms. However there are exceptions. In fact, last night an incredible number of lightning and electrostatic discharges took place in Ålesund, almost like an electric storm! Here some photos of such an exceptional night.
Unluckily, the sky was cloudy so it was not possible to take better photos than these.
