A post shared by Alex (@serene.way) on I’m in Toronto visiting @UofTEarthSci. The flat I’m staying in has a great view of the CN Tower. We just had a thunder storm. Turns out the tower gets hit by lightning rather a lot! Very pleased I accidentally packed my camera’s light reduction filter. pic.twitter.com/V0eF4HuC6x
