I love a good electrical storm and personally, I find watching the sky light up under the force of nature a truly exhilarating experience.
According to Wikipedia, there are more than 16 million lightning storms every year. I feel a little bit duped by this stat because I only ever seem to see about 10 a year at the most. I decided to install this wallpaper for my phone, so I can see lightning every day.
Although it's not strictly a picture of a real bolt of lightning, rather a computer-generated representation of one, it's still an eye-catching image and one that makes your phone stand out a mile.
Perhaps it would've been better if the lightning was animated, but nevertheless this is a striking background image.
