statue of liberty lightning October 14, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): The Statue of Liberty, which is one of the most significant landmarks of the US coast line, was in its finest splendor when she was captured on camera by Jay Fine, 58.

Reportedly, Fine spent the entire night at the Battery Park in Manhattan, waiting for lightning to strike at the statue as he had read earlier that a storm was about to touch the New York coastline.

The New York based photographer, who was simply ecstatic on having captured the perfect picture after snapping his shutter bug for about 80 times, told reporters later that he had been waiting for this particular opportunity, of capturing the lady being struck by lightning, since the last 40 years!

The most beautiful and magnificent effect has been achieved by the photographer, and something like this has never ever before been captured by anyone in the past.

The Statue of Liberty, standing at a 305 ft and being covered with copper plates, is reportedly struck with almost 600 bolts of lightning every year, but such a remarkable picture has never ever been shot.

Jay Fine had clicked the perfect picture at 8:45 PM, on September 22nd 2010.
