Lightning Storm


We're having a huge lightning storm right now.  So I thought, perfect, I should go outside and stand in the lightning so I can take a picture of it!  I took over 400 shots to get a grand total of 4 with good lightning bolts actually in the picture.  The light was flashing like crazy but there were only bolts every so often.  So I stood on my back porch and snapped away every few seconds hoping to get the shutter to open and close at just the right time.  I saw some spectacular bolts while I was out there but my timing was always a little off.  I had a lot of fun though.  And don't worry, I was standing on my covered back porch so I wasn't at risk of getting struck.  Milo looked at me like I was more than a little bit crazy though.


  1. Very cool! I love it. It is a good thing we no longer use film, lol. Can you imagine the cost?

  2. Great shot! I love lightning and thunder storms. As a kid I once did use up a roll of film trying to catch a shot of was not amused developing 36 pictures of black sky.
