Default Spectacle of nature!

Interesting to observe there are different types of lightning... This one, flanked by some tiny streaks in the distant rain, came out like some spectre connecting the land and the sky, enough to make the car alarms go off!

Brilliant capture! Were you set up for a while before you got this? What were your settings?

bahadir,

Edison got the credits, Nikola Tesla was the man. He dug into the depths of electricity. He made magic with it, as in this picture. Immediately my attention was drawn to the electrically lit horizon

Spectacular - yes. Now were are those spectacles of mine...

Absolutely perfect! The detail in the sky is amazing, it looks like a storm you don't want to get caught in the middle of unprotected.

So happy to read your kind assessment my friend. Judging the exquisite storm scenes I remember from your works. I somehow knew this would appeal to you : )

I feel rewarded to read your opinion. Actually it takes for a while to predict where the next lightning could strike. Basically, the wider you go with the focal length the more probable you catch one but then the impact gets weaker, in which case 17 mm makes a good compromise in my humble experience. As for the aperture I relied on 'the optimised' f/8 @ a shutter speed of 10 seconds.

Thank you dear Torgny. As for the related association, the same, perhaps, could apply to the invention of photograph about which Louis Daguerre got all the credits, making his late partner Niepce'sson particularly angry about it, if that's the phrase...
