Spring Lightning by Neutron2K Spring Lightning by Neutron2K
Will be moved to scraps shortly.

Not a fantastic shot but my first ever successful lightning shot. (We don't get many storms and this is the first decent one in 5 years here!). Despite an hour of lightning with no rain, This was the only shot I captured.

Trying to compose in the pitch black from a car in the New Forest is extremely hard, especially when the storm is rolling around over the open plains that surround you.

Typically I managed to cock this up without checking my ISO. DOH! oh well. until the next storm!

Good work mate. Good to get anything at all where lightning is concerned..

Mate the lightning was around for over an hour with NO RAIN WHATSO EVER!! I stayed in the car though and picked a really stupid position. Right in the middle of the forest so it was so unpredictable as to where it would strike. Will know better next time... five years from now...
