I'm soooooo excited that I finally got a lightning shot!
Tonight is perfect for these kinds of shots- lots of lightning shooting around the sky, but fortunately, still dry.
To get this shot, I used a tripod and the shutter release cable. I placed the shutter speed on "bulb" and just kept clicking and holding down the cable for approximately 10-35 seconds hoping to catch a good shot. I did catch several nice lightning streaks- these two were the best.
EXIF: 32 seconds, f5, 18mm, ISO 400
