This should be framed and put on your wall forever! Just amazing!

However, I would have used a little exposure compensation for the fill flash provided by the lightining bolt !:-) Just kidding. Awesome shot!

Thomas!

Great Photo... definitly once in a lifetime. Congrats on the wedding as well.

Amazing that the lightning decided to come down during the 1/13 of a second that the shutter was open... truly amazing.

Thanks everyone for checking in and commenting. The lightening truly was a gift considering my exposure timeand the fact that the camera was on a ten second timer. The craziest thing of all is that I tired to take photos of the lightening deliberately afterwards and was unsuccessfull.

It was only when I viewed the photo at home on my PC two weeks later that I noticed the lightening.

What.... it took you TWO WEEKS to view the photo of your proposal...?

Oh, wait a minute.... you're in love! Oh course, cameras and computers take a (fine) second place then.... :blah:

Best wishes for the future

Paul

PS Dustin.... I was waiting for someone to come up with a smart remark like that one.... trust you to do it! :lol:

Lol PJ. I was on holiday in Malawi. I had a laptop to load photos on to, but it did not have a raw convertor/viewer (wasn't mine), so I had to wait to get home to see the photos. But it took about 3 minutes once I was home to look at the photo.
