I got a Canon cable switch for my *ist DL and gave it a test run during a thunderstorm a few months ago.

53 second exposure @ f/8.0, ISO 400, 38mm focal length

Been trying to get one of those for a while, but no luck yet. Very well done, a wonderful shot. They come around here in Utah in the summer/fall, but not in winter.

I got lucky when I took this shot. There was a parking garage structure with a great view of the sky, so I went to the top floor. It wasn't raining, so I just set up the tripod outside, and used a long extension cord so I could use the cable release while inside the car.

I love this guys work. He is the one that inspired me to start shooting lightning, and gave away some of the secrets to doing it right.

Oh man that is such an awesome shot. I've always wanted to capture a shot like that but we hardly get any thunder storms here. Very nice capture. I'm curious, was it raining on you or only in the distance?

There was no rain at all, and I was outside for at least an hour. Only after I returned home did the rain start pouring.
