That must have been so hard to take a shot of. It's just too fast :)

Wow! Perfect timing!:wow:

I've been trying to get a picture of lightning, but I haven't been able to time it right yet.:hmm:

Thanks! =)

Yes, it's quite hard. I was very lucky with this one, especially on framing, it's not cropped, the lightning hit right on the centre of the frame! =)

You're welcome!

Very true. You and the camera don't have time to react when you see the lightning flash. By the time the camera focuses and snaps the photo, it's already too late. You have to snap the photo before the lightning strikes, and hope to get lucky.:nod:

It's amazing how it struck right in the middle of the frame too!

oh, but you're trying harder way... =)

The not-so-damn-hard way is to choose a spot, find a good exposure, focus to infinity and put the camera on intervalometer... ;)
