Sometimes, a photographer will get absurdly lucky and take a one-in-a-million shot. After all, not only are they capturing something rare and exquisite when they do this, but the stars align and actually ensure their photo is clear and of high quality.
I think we can all think of times where we saw something special, only for the scene to change before we can get a good shot of it.
And while they were lucky to get some of the incredible shots we're about to see today, we're lucky that they decided to share them with us. Otherwise, we might have never believed some of these striking scenes were possible.
