I saw this on YouTube as "Lightning Strikes River", but I'm calling det cord and dynamite

                                                         Regardless of what caused it, the explosion is powerful.

  2. Oh yeah, definitely staged, but cool none the less. There are about thirty lightning videos after that one, most on water, none had effects like this one did.

  3. A quick way to locate those pesky sinker logs in the channel.

  6. From one of the youtube comments, it provides a link to the original article in Finland, where they were performing underwater mining, and deepening the river channel. Google translation.

  7. Very convenient camera location. All the action was horizontal and perfectly framed/staged. Definitely det cord, IMHO.

  8. In the past I played with things that did this.
    It was not lightning.

    But whatever the person used was commercial grade.
