    Excellent work... I've never tried my hand at lightning shots but this has got me wanting to try! Hopefully we have a storm here soon :)

    Excellent! Well done. It's been so long since I've seen lightning, I've forgotten what it looks like. Heck, I'd be happy if we'd just get some rain right now.

    Amazing! Even if there is lightning, I rarely see these wonderful, instantaneous streaks in the sky.

    Rudi, that last one is just perfect. Are you guys using lightning triggers, or just time exposures hoping for the best?

    Thank you! :smile: I can't speak for anyone else, but I just use time exposures.

    I thought I would start a thread, because I'm sure there is some spectacular lightening photographs shot by forum members.

    what camera and lens did you use? Exposure info etc? I think tha type of information makes these forum topics much more interesting

    Sure, no problem. GF1 14/2.5 the rest I'll post when I get home. It's difficult to get the exposure right I found.

    typed on my phone, sorry.
