Lightning picutres

I got called into work last night after the bad storm we had. Lightning was very crazy. I stopped at the beach to try to get some pix. The lightning was mostly up in the clouds by the time I got there.

I tried a few things and I'll show 1 of the samples. It was 9:30 and without distinct bolts, all I got was collected light and 2 bolts.


This was 30 sec and I found that anything between 8 and 30 worked, just slightly different effects.

Show what you have, maybe we can pass ideas around...

    I think this was a 15 second exposure but could have been longer.

    A couple from my backyard.



    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
