    Hey guys,

    and finally I got another fantastic night from weather. Actually I haven't seen so many lightnings until now. The sky was flashing like crazy...and so did I with my digicam of course...:loco:

    You can check photos here:

    http://www.weather-photos.net

    on the left menu click on the link "Latest photos" and you will see those lightnings I took last night.

    Was almost killed though, around 300m near me one tree was striked :D

    here are some pics for preview:

    the 3rd one is so amazing it looks fake :headbang:

    hey man, question: how do you get to shoot the exact moment where the lightining is in it's full form?
    i mean, you just keep taking pictures or you have some kind of camera adjustment to shoot when it gets X lux in the diafragm?

    I have professional camera which has a function that I can choose the right time of exposure, so I have more chances to shot in the right moment. You meant a 'light sensor' or smth like that, that is possible to have but its silly thing.
    the other thing is almost 10 years of experiences with lightning photography and of course a good luck with huge storm and also you must know weather issues. With all this I can get the right position for shots and the right time.

    The last pic like you said...looks almost fake, because it was so many lightning strikes per minute, that I got few of them on the same pic. This was unusual storm for our country, called "supercell".

    Cheers:headbang:
