My first attempt at shooting lightning. Now I want to go shoot more! I need to find a good covered spot. This was shot out the window and the inside of my door started to get soaked so I called it quits.

Two weeks until I go storm chasing. I wish I had a lightning trigger, but I'll have to try the good old bulb method.

I shot this while I was out working on client properties this morning. I am really trying to get the panning thing down.....

Quirkee and Geeky, I've found lightning is about luck (right place, right time) and quantity. I was on a cruise in the middle of a thunderstorm and I just set a 2-5 second exposure and hope a bolt was in the frame. Out of 200 or so pictures, I got 1 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/frenchbrown/2421444687/sizes/o/in/set-72157604593723664/

Totally worth it. I'm now addicted to lightning.

Nice capture. I'm glad to hear that works. I always intended on doing that next time I was around a thunderstorm. I really didn't want to go spending a decent amount of coin on those light sensors that control the shutter.

Macro is hard with such a small DOF. Anybody know what kind of snake this is? He was only about 10 inches long.

Great shot! Yea, a lot of luck is involved without a sensor. I missed an awesome lightning bolt by probably a 1/10th of a second. It was fading out on the shot I got. The one I posted was the only other shot that had lightning in it out of about 20.

I would guess at Nerodia sipedon sipedon, or Banded Water Snake. Hard to say definitively as Nerodia look very similar as juveniles and a picture is never as reliable as having a critter in hand.

Did he bite the **** out of you?

Tagging in South Orange County. The city would likely lose their minds and go on a witch hunt if they knew this existed. Obvious lack of talent here, but I think it's rad for that reason alone.
