We had a pretty good thunderstorm this evening, but unfortunately my timing was all wrong for most of the lightning – I did manage to get this lightning glow on a long exposure shot though.
I admit I really like watching lightning, providing it’s not too close, and have been wanting to try getting some better lightning photos for years! This evening we had a fantastic thunderstorm, where the lightning streaked across the sky for ages, so that meant I had plenty of opportunities to get some photos!
These were all taken from indoors, through a window – you can see some of the raindrops on the glass, but that just adds to the feel of the photo.
All of these were taken on a rapid-fire setting, with a short(ish) shutter speed, and there were about 350 shots with no lightning in at all! Whenever we get another thunderstorm, I’m going to try putting the camera on a tripod and using a slower shutter speed to hopefully capture more of the lightning in each photo.
