Thank you so much Clifford, always appreciated.

Debra Plett

Awesome capture Heather. It deserves a frame. In expand mode the trees and clouds really show off the stunning composition. It almost looks like the lightning hit down.

Thank you so much Debra, always appreciated. I think that bolt did hit because it caused quite a rumble. I went inside shortly after when the storm got too close for comfort. I like how this strike lit up the clouds and sky through the trees, it was an awesome sight to see.

Scott Reeve

Fantastic capture! Proof that these shots can be taken on reflex!

Heather Mellon

Thank you for your comment Scott, it's much appreciated. I felt pretty good about this shot and a couple more that weren't bad either.

Beautyful strike of lightening Heather. Very sharp and the line of backlight trees is interesting. Well done. I try those night shots once in a while but never succeed so far.

Thank you so much Yves, always appreciated. I've only had limited success in the past myself but if the lightning bolts come steadily enough the odds go up quite a bit for getting the shot you're after. That's when I get my camera out..

The clouds were almost pitch black as this lightning storm passed across the sky. We've had more than the usual number of these storms recently but this one was livelier than usual so I decided to try my luck. Taken hand held in manual mode.
