    Default I almost forgot....lightning!

    After catching up all last week with my April/May photos, I finally had them all up on FB/Flickr and then realized I hadn't added my lightning pics from last week's super-storm! I was so excited about them too! LOL

    So I wanted to show them here just for fun. They'll be up on FB at lunchtime. (they were shot using my Tamron 75-300 which I probably should have changed out to get wider angle, but I was in a hurry!! It still worked out well though.

    #1: f/32, SS 8 seconds, 70mm, ISO 1600


    #2: f/32, SS 20 seconds, 70mm, ISO 1600


    #3: f/32, SS 15 seconds, 70mm, ISO 1600


    #4: f/32, SS 15 seconds, 70mm, ISO 1600 (really interesting squiggle of lightning on our right that you probably would miss with the naked eye!)


    I was inspired to try it out after seeing one from Kerry a few weeks ago, so then the night of the 12th we ended up having a huge long thunderstorm with record lightning, I remembered her settings and I took my tripod out to the back porch (we were out watching the lightning anyway--it was spectacular), and shot away

    Thanks, settings added! oh, and the sky really was that color when lit up! hmmm I wonder why Flickr is saying these were at 70mm focal length when I was using a 75-300?

    Thanks!!
    Jennifer did I miss some lightning shots from you? I was just browsing your Flickr again but didn't see any....

    El, really? That's a shame, I love lightning/thunderstorms, ever since I was a kid when my Dad used to sit with us in chairs at the edge of the garage to watch the storms.

    Awesome shots, Amy!! That is totally cool! We haven't had a good thunderstorm yet, but when we do, you've inspired me to try it out myself!! Great pictures!!
