A daring photographer risked going up in a helicopter during a huge storm to capture this perfect shot of lightning streaking across the New York skyline.

Jennifer Khordi went up in a chopper to lead a photographic tour of the city on Thursday night – but the storm broke while they were up in the air.

She said: “I led a helicopter Photo tour and we took off from Linden. The storm started while we were up there.

“I landed to let off the passengers then raced to jersey city to take the lightning shots.

“What you see from the chopper is a supercell over the World Trade Center.”
