photoblog image Crack bang flash
Late last night as I was getting ready for bed the thunder clouds rolled over head and put on a show for me, I think just for me, as there were no other signs of life around. Since I had uploaded a new picture to the blog, done my teeth, done the daily download! and even though it was abit late and the idea of bed appealing I thought about how to get a picture of the lightening. I like taking pictures of fireworks but usually end up being slightly disappointed by them as they are so small! On the ether hand lightening fills the sky. So I found the camera without making too much noise then waited in a window, 5 or 6 pictures of darkness later and then this one by pure luck! I now have a better idea how to do it next time, any tips on technique will be greatly appreciated.

Hi ottolola - great captute! You've achieved what I have thought about but have never got my act together to do : a picture of lightening. So I am afraid no tips from me on this subject, but in my opinion you have done very well. Congrats. Mike
Christian Brown: Thanks Michael for visiting and leaving message, did you get the same storm in the east?

very cool shot ottolola! like the blur too.
Christian Brown: Thanks for visiting ottolola. The radial blur was to mask to the camera shake! I had managed to sharpen the sky area with an un-sharp mask.
