adeincyprus: and even more difficult when there isn't any to shoot.......... ( 5 years and 2669 days ago )
MnMCarta: I love shooting them. Of course during hurricane season we get a lot of storms so it lasts about all Summer. After that we get nothing! LOL ( 5 years and 2669 days ago )
jawshoewhah: All I know is my last effort to shoot lightning, when there was major lighting to photograph, I was quite unsuccessful. ( 5 years and 2669 days ago )
MnMCarta: Ok I am not a happy camper! I finally made the level 10 but have no PC to upload my pics! Lol good luck to all! ( 5 years and 2666 days ago )
kyricom: No lightning around here this time of year ( 5 years and 2665 days ago )
FallingHorse: A couple more months would see plenty here.... I'll just have to wait until this one comes around again ( 5 years and 2664 days ago )

outbackjack: I have been waiting for this one to come around lol ( 5 years and 2663 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Even if I could figure out how to get some good lightning shots, lately all weather over Utah has been rather rainless, let alone electrical storms. I think we could have got some nice entries if we were allowed to stage it. ( 5 years and 2663 days ago )
outbackjack: Where does it say you have to wait for the contest to be announced b4 u can get your shot?? Surely others like me have been chasing this photographic challenge and have one in their storehouse. ( 5 years and 2663 days ago )
FallingHorse: I don't have a store house as i have only owned a camera since joining this site! ( 5 years and 2662 days ago )
kyricom: These are all pretty nice shots... I'm jealous ( 5 years and 2660 days ago )

I think the trick to shooting lightning is to use a bulb exposure setting and fairly small aperture (5 years and 2669 days ago)

After years of waiting I finally got one at Yardea Station Easter Monday 2010. Only adjustment made was to remove a couple of rain spots otherwise as is from camera. (5 years and 2664 days ago)
