    Nice pics, I really like the last one the best, I like how its off center and is really lighting up the sky so you can see the other clouds.... Check out my lightning shot a few posts below your and let me know what you think.

    Awesome. My favorite is the second to last one, I like the fact that there is some clear sky there, and the colors are cool!

    Amazing, I love them! Is there any sort of special technique to taking these? If you don't mind me asking, what shutter speed were you using?

    almsot all shots were between:
    200-250mm focal length

    all were:
    5.6f/stop
    200iso
    15 shutter

    thanks for the comments guys!!!

    my technique was to jsut point the camera and leave the remote taking continous photos and hope that it caught the lightning. lol. that was the hot spot in the sky
