That's so cool. I keep telling myself to get a picture of some lightning, but it hasn't rained here in months.

This is now our active storm season. It is time for "wall clouds". I will be busy trying to capture some of the action! =) :thanks:

You really have a fast camera in getting that picture.

This color for this shot was directly out of the camera. I only tweaked the contrast.

If you look at the data this image was shot at: the ISO at 125, F5, at 1/5 of a second is was shot at a slow shutter speed.

Many photographers think you need a fast camera to achieve a shot like this. It's all about timing, location and setting the image up correctly in the camera. It is also wise to have a camera without shutter lag. That is why I use a Nikon D3.

Almost all of my photography is manually done.

Thank you for your comment.

It takes many things to capture lightning like to name a couple, lots of patience and safety when perusing lightning photography. Thank you. :thanks:

You make a good case for being in the right place at the right time. The way the lighting is in front or within the tree means you were rather close (maybe a little too close for comfort).
