Ride the Lightning by SaldaeanFarmgirl Ride the Lightning by SaldaeanFarmgirl
The lightning was amazing last night. This picture does it absolutely no justice. But it was worth a try. No lightning touched ground, it all went from cloud to cloud.

Wow, so pretty. I love thunderstorms, although we don't get them much here.

Thanks! Its pretty easy to take them, you just need a tripod/table and the ability to change the shutter speed. This one was taken at a 6.5 shutter... I'm not sure if you know much about camera's, but the camera was taking the picture for a full 6 and a half seconds. The shutter was open that long. Thats what allowed me to get this shot, otherwise I would've missed them all.

Ah sounds good :)
I`ve got a canon 400D, so I`m pretty
sure I can change the speed of the shutter :P
I just don`t know how :S :P

......The manuals are too long!
it`s like The Lord Of The Rings all over again,
only in a language I don`t understand! The
language of clever people who know tons
about clever stuff! :P
