An Electric Evening

Last night we had an amazing storm here in South West Florida.  While there was not a lot of rain there was a ton of lightning.  God had his strobe light on last night.

Lightning is not an easy thing to capture with photography.  There are timing issues, you never know when it is going to strike.  Then there is the shutter speed and aperture settings that need to be tweaked to be able to capture an amazing shot.  And finally, I needed to take a hundred shots or so just to capture a few good photos.  Just snapping photo after photo, hoping that lighting would crack just as I snapped a shot.

I ended up getting a few great shots and it was a fun little adventure until the lightning looked like it was getting a little to close for comfort and of course, trying to avoid the rain.
