Thunderstruck by FramedByNature Thunderstruck by FramedByNature
...you should have seen my reaction when I saw the image on the camera display! I was all, jumping up and down... my hands started shaking...I kid you not =D
And you know what this reminded me of? That one famous poster of the lightning strike hitting the perfect tree in the middle of a field... but from a different angle :XD:
Oh man, cloud to cloud lightning, you've gotta love it! :boogie:

Thank you all for viewing! If anything of mine ever sells prints, this'll definitely be the one :) I thank you for your time :dance:



:peace:

MAN! Amazing shot dude! all in one second too! How many shots did you do during that shoot and how many had strikes? I really need to find some lightning to photograph.

Thanks! Honestly, practically every shot I took had lightning in it. I didn't shoot blindly, I instead waited for the flash of light and then pressed the shutter. It was an amazing lightning storm, one I haven't seen rivaled since :)

Interesting! I figured that if you waited for the flash of light, by the time your reaction and the camera's delay were done with, the strike would be over. I haven't experienced too many lightning storms though. Maybe there are two strikes or are they just long enough to capture?
OR is there a little blip of light in the clouds (cloud-cloud discharge) before actually striking the ground?

I thought it was difficult to get a shot of lightning because there's no real warning.

With sheet lightning like this, it starts in the distance (near the horizon) and spreads across the sky. For this shot, I saw a flash behind the tree, so I pressed the shutter. Half a second later, the lightning had spread all across the sky, right over my head. Usually you can use other flashes in the sky as warning signals =D
