Electric Education II by FramedByNature Electric Education II by FramedByNature
:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:

Lightning, one of the things I love shooting the most. School, one of the things I despise most. :XD: Shot this bolt a couple years back framed above my high school. Nice to be able to shoot lightning without getting wet, but this bolt sent me running back to the car regardless =D Always seems silly, running for your life after the danger has passed, but it's such a gut reaction. Luckily, I don't think I missed any good bolts after this. ;)

I always loved this lighting shots , I always thought of lighting shots as always being fit to be only in horror movie posters but now I see that they are so damn beautiful and amazing that they could fit into any theme!

What settings do you use to get shots like this one? Just a mid-slow shutter speed and a ND filter, or anything special?

Another magnificent shot but be careful, dude! I'm going to pay especial attention to your ISO, exposure time, and f-stop because I tried some lightning shots a few days ago but I got more flash than bolt. I think I had the aperture too wide. Certainly the ISO was too high at 400 (it was film).

Very nice shot. There were days when that building was indeed evil, but I do miss it sometimes. SOMETIMES.
