Ahh, the beauty after a mid-summer storm is something to marvel at... unless the storm isn’t quite over.

Swede Ingela Tanneskog was recording a rainbow that formed over some trees by a lake when suddenly Mother Nature decided she wanted an encore. At the 10-second mark of the video posted to YouTube Aug. 21, a lightning bolt strikes just metres away from where she’s filming.

You might want to turn your volume down for this short video. (You’ve been warned so you won’t jump as much as we did when it hits.)

Luckily, she was unharmed as it looks like she was filming inside.

Good thing the same thing didn't happen to the double-rainbow guy because the emotions may have have been too much for him. That video (posted below) went viral in 2010 and now has more than 40 million views.
