Horizontal Lightning

I'm digging into my 2011 archives for this week's Skywatch Friday post, and I think it's perfect for Ein Stuck Himmel (a piece of heaven) too. It's a lightning shot which I haven't yet published.
It was taken from our back deck. It should only be a few weeks before our first thunderstorms of the year start cropping up, and hopefully I can get some good shots this year!

Awesome capture. Living in Florida, I've been itching to get a good understanding on how best to shoot lightning. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. You definitely know what works!

I don't know how to take a shot like this yet. Perhaps 2013 will be the jackpot year to learn.

Vertical lightning is the norm here so to see horizontal flash and take a photo is phenomenal. Thanks for showing this.

Liza said...

Fantastic shot! Happy sky watching.

My sky.

Hello, Al!
Here we have been much hot, much rain at evening, with lightning and thunder!
Yesterday I saw a documentary on tv showing that Brazil is the country that has the bigger quantity of lightning in the all world! Wow!

Hope you have a nice week ahead.

Fortunately, there's very few thunderstorms in my city. But it's a shame, I can't do these great photos.
