My first good lightning photo. Used manual focus and a remote shutter. Cropped, resize and some sharpning. Will include something in the foreground next time to make the picture more interesting. It's been a while since my last post.

Hi Peter, now that is a strike and a half. I wouldnt want to be at the end of that one, even indoors.It is really clear and I dont mind there being nothing else around with a strike this big.At least you can see all of it unlike most of mine hidden by trees. Fiona

Hi Peter,
Perfect timing in this lightning shot. Great details and perfect exposure. Great composition with the bolt hitting the ground.
Well done,

Francis Xavier
