Caption: Lightning damage. Close-up view of a telephone cable which has been struck by lightning. The short duration of the strike meant that the wire wasn't completely burnt through, but the heat generated was still sufficient to force the wire out of its insulation. Photographed at the Culham Laboratories, Oxford, UK.
