    and i decided to take some pics:
    this one started it, i wanted to get the tree being blown by the wind, sorta caught it...

    then i realized that there was some nice lightning out, most turned out pretty crappily, but i got a few like the next three

    and then i captured this big MoFo... (click for a big pic)

    what ya'll think?

    BTW - before you ask, i got very lucky with the capture, to tell the truth, i just half-assed it, at least in photography it seems like i can screw around and come up smelling like roses
    i varied the time, i'd hold it for about 10 seconds on some pics, 20, or 30 on others, they all turned out about the same, except the last one had a nice t-bolt in it
    basically i just set the f-stop to let as much light in as possible, then used the cable release and guessed
