Lightning Strikes With Bolt
This photograph is the very definition of a decisive moment. Sports photographer Olivier Morin was in the right place at exactly the right time to capture a lighting bolt in the frame behind someone who happens to be named Bolt—Jamaican runner Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world. Where did he accomplish this feat? Oh, that's right there in the photo too: The IAAF World Championships in Moscow. As Mike Johnston said on his TOP blog, it's "kind of like photographing Tiger Woods at a key moment in a tournament just as a tiger happens to walk by in the background." Decisive moment, indeed.
