Oops! Typo....its F2.8.

I use the AF to focus at the distant light. Once its focus, I switch to MF, and just keep on triggering the shutter on the tripod......

I didn't know the FZ10 has F2.4. :-)

How did you focus?

Those are amazing shots.......you must be very brave to take them as we here in Florida have many people killed by lightening every year........and I don't think that I'd like to be outside during a lightening sorm. That's what makes these shots even more amazing! Thanks for sharing. bentleysmom

The thunderstorm pics you posted few months ago were a bit more spectacular IMO, but the clouds and the brown color make these ones great shots too.

A few weeks ago I was awoken by a thunderstorm but it was ceasing when I set my FZ20 on tripod and I was so unlucky that the main 3 thunders which broke in the FOV of the FZ20 took place just whne the 8 sec expositions had ceased and the cam was making the dark-shots noise subtraction or it was in the 2 sec timer lapse...
