Nature: Lightning


There was a thunderstorm to the south of us this evening, by the look of the reflected lightning I saw they got quite a show. In my part of town there were few actual lightning bolts seen, they were all cloud to cloud, and this is the only decent shot I got.

I’ve had little success shooting lightning – any tips ya got would be appreciated.

Equipment: Canon 5D on tripod / remote shutter / 1 sec exposure / f 9 / ISO 640 / 13mm

      Thanks Laura, my average seems to be hundreds of clicks but only one catch per year, it’s near summers end so this may well be the one for this year
