Show me your best lightning strike photos Answered

G'Day,

We have just had quite a large storm roll through and I thought I would send you the best still out of the footage I captured.

Attached is a photo of a lightning strike that hit a tree less than 100 meters away from me!

I've got a few on flickr, they don't like to embed in the comments though...

Neat!

Were those all still shots? I don't have a proper camera so I have to video it and take a frame out of the video.

I love the first shot on that page though, it is so clear!

Yup, still shots. If you look at the info under the picture you can see the camera type, exposure length etc.

These were done on a Nikon D90 on a tripod, with a 6 second long exposure. So basically, if you see lighting, you point the camera in that direction and hope lightning strikes there within 6 seconds lol.

Wow, that is really cool!

Isn't lightning awesome?! Did you know it starts from the ground and then goes up?

Wow, that is really cool!

For a white bolt to be captured so clearly that must have taken a while!
