Since we get a lot of storms in the summer months I like to try my hand at storm photography. It is probably the hardest thing to photograph ... EVER.

These are some lightning photographs of mine.

This first one is actually the first storm I tried, and it's probably my best so far:

The second I like, but not enough to put into my gallery ... it's in the scraps at the moment:
Image

This one is more recent, and I caught it at a shutter speed of 1/1000 second!
Image

I was so happy when this happened, but so bitterly disgusted when I saw it on the computer ... me jabbing the shutter button with a shutter speed of 1/8 second resulted in massive blurriness ...

Are there any other ozzuian photographers out there who've caught lightning? Please share them! :D

3rd photo actually is my preferred of the lot. Nice shot, nicely captured. Have you ever thought about adjusting the levels in Photoshop?

I've never had my camera on me when the thunder starts. To be honest we don't get alot of storms like that in Scotland so when it rains i just expect it to be another rainy wet day, nothing more.

It's certainly something i'd like to try once though.
