Monsoon season is back in Tucson. Here are some of my first attempts of the year
This is on my to do list. I don't have a good view of the sky from my apartment so hopefully will catch some one day. These all look great but #4 stands out to me the most. Thanks for sharing.
Great shots!!! Do you use a lightning trigger? Here in Mass a big electrical storm is tree flashes nothing like out in the midwest where I grew up.
Beautiful shots. I like the almost abstract feel to them.
...I wish we had lightning like that here.
Usually when there's lightning, it's too cloudy to see it.
No lightning trigger. Just long exposures.
I am definitely lucky to live in AZ. I have from July to Aug to get my picture taking in. That is generally when the monsoons come through
You took those?
Equipment list and data please?
Great shots. I love number 4.
I did take these.
Here is the what I used
Canon 30D. I used my 28-135mm lens for these. I started shooting just as the sun was going down so my settings were: ISO 100, f22, 15-30 second exposures. Once the sun went down completely I ended up at ISO 100 f7 (ish) and 1-2 min exposures.
Great captures. Thanks for sharing.
