Following last month's collection of awesome video game/real world mash-up shots, lightning has struck twice. Well similar lightning, just in different places.

Artist and illustrator Jamie Sneddon and photographer Kevin Rozario-Johnson have worked together on these ace pictures which combine iconic 8-bit icons with various landscapes.
