Shot more than 200 different pics, before I came up with this one.

What do you think?

WOW, I think, and you were awarded for all your patience!
I have never so far HAD that amount of patience but then I also find thunderstorms more threatening than anything...
But I love to look at other people's photos of lightning striking!

That's the best shot I've seen this year. I'd love to take a shot like that

Awesome shot, I love the purplish glow. Just curious, how did you do? Did you just keep taking pictures until you captured one, or keep the shutter open until lightning hit? I'd like to try taking some lightning shots this spring/summer myself, just wodered if you had any pointers.
