Wow, nice light show! Love that deep purple colour. Very moody.
Terrific! I love lightning! When I was a kid growing up on a Michigan lake (Klinger Lake near Sturgis), we would all gather on a covered porch to watch the storms coming across the lake. All that thunder and lightning and big black clouds and wind bending the trees and rain sweeping over the water -- it was quite a thrill! (This was before TV.) Where I live now, I don't get nearly such a grand view of the sky.
You really caught the mood and ferocity of that storm well. Wonderful pictures.
Well done! Photos were very nicely taken.
OOoohhh. Exciting. I find that I take about a hundred photos when trying to catch lightening. You did a good job. I assume you only took four photos.nellie
Beyond - hahaha - your funny! :) I actually took probably close to 100 photos, and deleted 85. This includes video. The key is a timed exposure. I have a cable release and set the camera on "bulb." They I stood there holding the shutter open for several seconds (upwards of a minute or more), hoping there would be a good strike. If a BIG flash happened, I closed the shutter and checked the image - if I was lucky, I caught a bolt.
