A photo shared over 90,000 times on Facebook was taken by a photographer who says the shot took him seven years to capture.
Greg McCown, 42, snapped the photo of a lightning bolt hitting the ground while a rainbow appears in the sky above Arizona, according to The Weather Channel.
“Finally! After years of trying I finally got my lightning and rainbow picture," McCown said in the Facebook post. “What an awesome evening.”

According to The Weather Channel, McCown is a real estate salesperson from Tucson who takes photos in his downtime. He that the shot, taken in a small town just to the northwest of Tucson, required a lot guesswork and experience to capture. He said he had hoped the lightning would hit the ground where he wanted it to strike.
He also told The Weather Channel that it took him over seven years to take the photo, saying that the shot was something out of a dream for him.
