    I have NEVER so far managed to capture lightning. So I find it amazing over and again in each photo that I see with a lightning bolt!

    Thanks for the feedback guys.
    This was my 1st attempt at lightning with my 20D..
    When I used to take shots of lighting i would try and wait for the bolt to come down and quickly snap it on a fast shutter, all with the lag of the shutter release on my sony as well. But then I got some tips on leaving the shutter open and trying it that way.
    Much better way of taking them..
    Cheers.
