I'm pretty sure that 95% of good photo's are all about being at the right place at the right time.

Nice work

No kidding. I've wasted many rolls of film and lots of bucks trying to catch lightning with time exposures. And never got anything near as good as that. There is a hack for some cameras, that will slave the shutter to the flash of the lightning. That will catch every one that is in view.

That is how that Ansel Adams guy took that pic of Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico, 1941. He parked his car, put the camera on the roof of the car, clicked the shutter one time and left.

oh crap that's a good idea! Either way, was a complete guess on shutter speed, I was afraid 1600 was going to be too dark but didn't really have a lot of time.

THAT is amazing! He just had the gift, and I think a little help from above with some of his photos.

Holy crap! I was gonna gues that you did a long exposure on a tripod for that, seeing the amount of background light! I just wonder how it would look with a smaller aperature (bigger number to clarify) and slower shutter would've worked to filter out some of the "stuff" in the pic?

yay! what resolution do you have set? I can recrop it so it fits better.

The thing about lightning that intrigues me the most is the path it takes... it's incredible

Awesome! I was just talking about doing this last night. I have an old 35mm camera my grandpa gave me. You really have to be away from the city lights though.

Did anyone notice the heart shape about 1/4 of the way down the lightning bolt? It's interesting that it would take such a complex path, and cross, or nearly cross it's own path.
