Nice catch Frank 8) . We rarely if ever get lightning here so I appreciate shots like that every time I see them.

Looks like an arteriogram of the arteries of the heart

VERY nice catch, Frank!

Hi,

It's very easy to be honest.

Point at the sky, set a 15 seconds exposure and let it go, when the lighting flashes hold your hand for the lens for the remaining seconds.

You will have alot of black shots, but you WILL get the lightning.

Greetings,
Frank

Frank,

Thanks for the tip on how to do lightning. I often wondered how one could do it on the cheap wihtout fancy electronic equipment.

And yes, the picture was great.

Aloha.
