About This Image

Just a little before midnight the thunder woke me up. Well being a total photo nut, I threw on some cloths and was outside taking photos in less than five minuets. We don't get a lot of great lightning shows out here in the desert so I was a tad rusty on what settings to use. The lightning always seems to attack the mountains and leaves all the houses down in the valley alone. This lighting was hitting the mountains that are around 15 miles away from my home..

Hi Matt, Your very welcome and thanks for dropping by my photos.. I hear ya about the bulb setting, my Canon XTi only goes up to 30 seconds unless I'm missing it somewhere. I've improved from this 2006 shot.
Matt - Oct 08, 2009 05:27 AM EDT
Hello, thanks for your comments, good shots, does your camera have a bulb mode ? If you can utilize that you'll get heaps more shots, I'm pretty sure your camera has it but I am not that lucky enough to know where to find it. But I suppose that's up to you how you get your shots, but in nighttime it is the BEST ( that's only my say so tho !) Well done . Take care.

Thanks Carol, what can I say I enjoy taking lightning and don't think it is any more dangerous than driving a car or flying.. Thanks Lisha, I'm glad you also liked my photo. Hey Alandra I really don't know what to tell you about the 50mm lens. They are the best lens for sharpness and great for using in low light. Mine is the cheapest one you can buy and it takes great photos. Here is a page that explains the 50mm lens pretty good. You need to copy the link and add the h t t p: for this link. //vothphoto.com/spotlight/articles/forgotten_lens/forgotten-lens.htm Do a Google search, there is a lot of information about the 50mm lens. The 50mm is a fast lens and you need to make sure your focusing is right on. Hope this helps you some.

This is beautiiful!!!!
Guest - Sep 17, 2007 04:55 PM EDT
Yep, very crazy to be out in the storm. But excellent photo! Carol
Guest - Sep 17, 2007 04:17 PM EDT
Hi Alan, about the 50 mm lens. I got one of those awhile back, and don't find it sharp at all. Mine is a II series, maybe that's the problem, I dunno. I hardly ever use mine as wasn't happy with the way the images turned out.
Guest - Sep 17, 2007 01:57 PM EDT
Hi Alex, Beverly, and Commodore for your wonderful comments. Sorry about the really slow reply, I just can't keep up :) Yea I'm a little crazy but I just can't help it. When the lightning is flashing I have to take some photos of it.
Guest - Jul 12, 2006 02:19 AM EDT
very nice and very crazy for being on a hill in a storm, well done though.
Guest - Jun 14, 2006 09:29 PM EDT
Awesome picture of the lightning. I like how you show the city night lights in it.
Guest - Jun 11, 2006 08:54 PM EDT
WOW!! what a great lightning series,good work.
Guest - Jun 11, 2006 01:10 AM EDT
Thanks very much Mary, Alandra, Brian, and Vicki for your wonderful comments.. Vicki about your ISO question when taking lightning you need to use a long shutter speed to have a better chance of catching a lightning bolt. So setting the ISO to 100 lets you do that. When using a tripod and the focus set you can use the slow ISO no problem. What also helped a lot was the 50mm lens. A cheap $70.00 50mm lens will take sharper photos than any zoom lens, well unless you spend thousands of dollars on a high end professional lens. If you don't have a 50mm lens get one, you will be amazed. ~Alan~
Guest - Jun 10, 2006 11:53 PM EDT
You set your ISO to 100 and got this great clarity? I'm really impressed. This is phenomenal
Guest - Jun 09, 2006 11:59 AM EDT
Awesome lightning shot... wow.
Guest - Jun 08, 2006 03:46 PM EDT
that's an incredible shot of the lightning strike, Alan. Glad you were able to capture these.
Guest - Jun 08, 2006 10:24 AM EDT
