THESE striking images of the thunderstorm that hit Bucks in the early hours of this morning were captured by Marlow resident and freelance photographer Jake Henderson.

Jake, 21, took the photographs from his home in Seymour Court Road at around 3am, when the night sky was being spectacularly lit up by lightning.

Jake, of Sharper Image Photography UK, took around 800 pictures in a bid to capture the perfect split-second shots of lightning.
