While most of the canvas representations in this category are typically either religious or emotive in nature, contemporary artists are finding lightning to be a viable subject matter in its own right. Although lightning photography is still the primary medium in which this art form is represented, more artists are finding the inspiration of nature's ferocity in their own paintings. Photography that incorporates lightning art is surprisingly full of depth and beauty. Lightning storms are portrayed both near and far in order to satisfy the curiosity and artistic integrity of these pieces. Blasted trees and roiling clouds are encompassed freely and provide surprising tints and shades that wouldn't be available otherwise. In both mediums of this art category, other objects aside from lightning are typically portrayed, as well. These subjects include mountains, oceans, animals, cities, and other organic or inorganic objects. These art works are more than mere depictions of atmospheric irregularities however, but translations of one of the most powerfully passionate phenomenon of nature. Because of the exciting impact of these works, they are typically used in professional settings rather than personal homes. However, when they are used in personal abodes, these art works are typically displayed in studies or other domains of intellectual or creative pursuits.
