Whenever you see multiple lightning bolts in photos your are normally seeing a long exposure photo, Meaning the cameras apeture is left open for a period and all lightning bolts that strike over that period appear in the final photo.

Can we have some darkening to counteract the lightening?

70 bolts of lightning, taken in one time-lapse photo spanning what could be several minutes... at once.

...OK, or it's a composite.
For some reason that's the last thing that comes to my mind. Pictures often seem more impressive when they look good as-captured.
I guess that also means that the similarly sized light streaks are in fact the same boat multiple times.

Photographer's website.

Pictures taken from 1:17 to 2:40. Images composited to result in 70 strikes at once. The original photographer apparently had to wait hours for a suitable storm with enough lightning activity.

Not all at once at all.

Actually they're not cars, they're BOATS..that's a photo over water. I agree totally on the long exposure on the frame as well. The rocks are clear because they are a STATIONARY object. Both the boats and the lightning are mobile. A camera will imprint objects casting a lot of light, and return great detail of stationary objects at long exposures like this. I'd say this is about a 1 minute exposure myself, but it's hard to tell how fast the boats are moving since they're at a distance, so it may be a longer exposure.

Batmanners

Indeed it was originally the only way to take a photograph.

Enomai, consider the source. IAB is notorious for bad spelling and even worse grammar.

I think Batmanners explains it well.

Also, since nobody's pointed it out yet, that's not how you spell lightning.
