A breath-taking shot will often require a great deal of timing, patience, and let’s face it … a load(ful) of luck.  This post contains some of the best examples of perfectly timed photos which have been taken with a stroke of luck or a combination of everything: circumstances, events, opportunity, etc.  Most of these shots are so incredibly fast that it takes only a blink of an eye for it to happen otherwise you’ll miss your chance!  Here are 19 incredible photographs, shot by ordinary people in their moments of extraordinary circumstances when milliseconds mean a photograph that either will  be made to tell a story or will be consigned to the dustbin of eternity as a tale of a big fish that got really away.
