    I try so hard to capture lightning, and I have gotten some great prints. Although I only had one turn out when it was still daylight. I understand how difficult it is. Great Capture.

    if you can find a good place to leave your camera for awhile, try a time exposure to capture lightning more easily.

    Great shots Raymond. I like the colour tones in them. Great timing in the first one.

    Good shots. Concrads's on the lightning. Your a brave man taking the camera out with that heavy a rain.

    Thanks everyone! I had some weather protection for the camera, but the wind was so strong, I got wet! The lightening pic was shot at 1/80 @ f 8 and It wasn't easy!!

    wow Raymond, the lightning shot is awesome! i'm glad you shared your secret, my last attempt was 79 shots...should have held out for that last one, eh? ;)

    the third image is my fav. i love the tones and feel of the shot...the rain and wind really set the mood. nice capture sir.

    Thanks Dallas and Jon., apreciate your thoughts! It's crazy to think that i could capture lightening at 1/80 sec, but I thought it was worth a shot! A long exposure would have messed up the waves, and i was hoping to catch a shot with the hard rain, wind, and lightening all in one!

    Also, I am still without a tripod! lol
