Lightning by jakethesnake999 Lightning by jakethesnake999
My best attempts at photographing lightning, although I have never really tired other than this time. I guess most of it is just luck. Now I can't wait for another storm so I can try this again.

That's incredible. I've tried to take lightning shots but never get anything good. How did you get such an amazing pic?!

A lot of it is luck. I've always said that getting good shots is 25% knowledge and 75% luck. This is awesome, especially for a first attempt. I got extremely lucky on my first go as well. :P

Wow, that's some awesome shot you got there!
We had some giant thunderstorm around here last night, and I've been sitting on the balcony, watching the lightnings rush down... it was an amazing atmosphere, and damn, I was soaked in the end, but I didn't care at all. Better than any movie you can watch.
Again, beautiful picture <3

wow.. I don't know what that tree did to God, but it must have been terrible...

This is amazing. How do you photograph lighting?? Sure it's over faster than your reflexes/camera can capture it..?

It0s beautiful... I can't wait to try this! Havin seen your camera and lens I now have no excuse... as I have aNikon D200 too, and an 18-200lens. Just need a storm and an angle!

Thanks. I find the hard part is just being in the right place at the right time. Setting up the shot isn't difficult. And this was taken with the 18-70 lens which I hate. The only reason I use it is because of the wide angle.

Fair enough! I adore my lens... other than macro and a low F stop, it really has everything I need!

Will try and convince myself to be in th right place at the right time... with my camera!
