Lightning!

Massive thunder and lightening hit over the sea on my last night here! Very cool, I rushed out to try and get a good lightning bolt photo (something I’ve wanted to do for ages) Its rather tricky to capture lightning. First off you are in a huge hurry in case the storm passes by and you get nothing but rained on, second you have to setup a long exposure and anticipate the 1.6 seconds before the bolts hit! After several near missed shots and a fair bit of cursing I finally managed one. I should have taken video in hind sight.
