Hey, VERY nice pbjunkee.

The colours present a powerful background, and the lightning forks - well caught.

I've only caught a handful of lightning photos myself, you did a good job to get a number of nice ones at that one occasion.

I like the 2nd last one the best (with the 4 lighting strikes!)

So do you have a gyzmo that releases the shutter when it senses the lightning bolt or did you just sit with the camera on B setting until a flash happened?

You have some real eye catchers here. Have you tried "stacking" several images together to create a final image of several lightning strikes? Not sure if you know this technique but all you need to do is look through your images and if the camera did not move take the strike shots and put them in a folder then stack them using cs3, 4 or 5.

Let me know if you want to try this and need more instruction.

I love the 3rd and 4th, with the 4th being my favorite with the 4 lighting streaks. Very nice captures, perfect exposures, and lucky the rain hadn't hit the area yet. For me, when the lighting starts so does the heavy rain.
