    Well yesterday evening during the big storms...I decided to break out the camera, head up to the roof (probably a bad Idea) , and see what I could capture. Unfortunately the storms kinda fizzled out and I really didn't get much because it then got really rainy and lighting was getting a little to close for comfort. Defenitely not the best capture...but its been a while for me so I thought I would share. BTW, I forgot to change my ISO down from 1600, boo on my part. Got some noise in there...but what can ya do!

    Well, I would have been too chicken to even BE there!
    Which is why I cannot say I have taken even ONE lightning photo EVER in my life!
    Therefore: congrats on getting this capture. Doh! about the high ISO, but hey ... doesn't this happen to all of us once in a while. So there...

    What aperture and time settings did you use to get this one?

    Are you trying out for a lightning rod position. Nice capture. I want to try to capture storms & lightning someday. Nice job!
