Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Bright.

Catatumbo lightning – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Catatumbo Lightning (Spanish Relámpago del Catatumbo) is an atmospheric phenomenon in Venezuela. It occurs strictly in an area located over the mouth of the Catatumbo River where it empties into Lake Maracaibo. The frequent, powerful flashes of lightning over this relatively small area are considered to be the world’s largest single generator of troposphericozone, that is, ozone that does not replenish the stratospheric ozone layer.
