Thunderstruck: The Bing home page lights up the Grand Canyon

Feb 24, 2014

I grew up with thunder and lightning storms in Florida, but as the latest Bing home page shows, there’s something spectacular about capturing such storms above one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

This amazing photograph, snapped by Corbis’ Scott Stulberg, illustrates thunderstorm season at Grand Canyon National Park, which runs from July to September. Bing’s summary of the home page image says lightning struck the canyon an average of 26,073 times per year from 1997 to 2000.

Go to Monday’s Bing home page to find out other interesting information and videos, including following an expedition of photographers; learning more about fossils, the newish Skywalk and what happens when you’re struck by lightning.
