Lightning photos

An isolated thunderstorm blew through to our north and looked like a great opportunity to grab some pictures and experiment. Out of 119 photos, 11 came out pretty cool. This looks like the best one...

DSC_0093

That was taken set at 15sec, f/7.1, 18mm. All of the photos are in my new lightning set on flickr.

Amazing photos, Joe!

No wonder you weren't online this evening. You were out snapping these killer lightning photos.

Hope you sleep well,

Cory

WOW!

That's a great picture..... when we have storms here, lightnings don't really come out that spectacular.

Great picture.

Very nice Joe. I particularly like DSC_0003. It reminds me of the plasma spheres that were all the rage a couple of years back.

My dad took some lightening photos from the front porch when I was a kid. I think it was time lapse stuff and I remember them being very vivid. I'll have to see if I can find a couple and scan them in.

nice! I like DSC_0100 a lot as well.

Reminds me I need to go back and look through my photos from a thunderstorm in Costa Rica from last summer. Pretty amazing stuff.

Good picture! Guess you had a good location to take those pictures. Look like that lighting was quite close to you though.

Damn, that's one thing that I miss from the South. We had so much better storms there than here.
