Some photos of last night’s barrage of lightning

June 23, 2008


Last night, while we were watching a movie, there was a constant flashing outside of our window.  The flashing kept getting more and more consistent and, seemingly, closer.  One of the strikes was close enough for the power to hiccup and so, after turning off and unplugging just about everything in the house, we managed to shoot a few photos of the lightning barrage.

These photos were taken with Eliza’s Canon Digital Rebel XTi in manual mode with an ISO of 100, F/3.5, and a 30-second exposure.  I think.



It took quite a bit of changing the settings, and snapping long exposures, to get the shots that I did.  Next time I’ll know what settings seem to work best and I’ll setup on a window without a screen.
