Lightnings

I caught these lightnings last night around 11 pm and I was very glad that I could try out my new D90 in these conditions.I’m very happy with the result (these photos are far more better than the ones took with my Samsung) though the storm was far away and the crop on this photos is massive.

Lightning bolts

I think that Mother Nature saw yesterday that I was upset for not taking some quality lightning photos and sent me another lightning storm to challenge me.Now I can trully say that I am pleased by the results.The storm was pretty close and I caught some nice lightning bolts.I can only imagine how cool it may be to shoot lightnings with a dslr camera having the shutter set to bulb mode.But I guess the 15 second exposure on my compact camera was long enough to catch these beautiful but very dangerous wonders of nature.

My first lightning photo

Last night I finally caught some lightning photos.It wasn’t easy because I had to stand still at the window for two hours in an almost unbearable heat.I HATE summer!The storm was far away, I couldn’t even hear the thunders so I had to use a great deal of zoom ratio and that affected the quality of the picture and the focusing.I caught a few lightnings but this picture is the best I have and I hope you like it even though it’s pretty bad judging it from a technical point of view.I hope that next time I will take much better lightning photos.
