How to take Lightning photos?
Here is a great site, (he used my photo too:) )

#1 Photo of the Month for August on Explore this! (**Explored Photos Only**) Thank you!!

#2 Photo in RAIN Theme Contest at Color Photo Award - PREMIER.
PREMIER SILVER Medalist. 08.11.08 -- Thank you..!


I tried to catch shots from 22.00 to 5.30 in the morning..
Trying to hide my camera from the rain and holding the tripod so it won't fall from the gust of winds.. Knees hurting from standing tense... And I got my awards:)
Two others were good, but not like this; this is the best... (Yes, I did jump and danced a wee second when I got this:D )
I just love extreme weather! My dream came true:) I always wanted to take a photograf of my love: Lightning...

The second one is HERE.

    where a dozen of us swam, on a clear summer day! -- Is it 1 million volts in a strike?
    We survived, in shock, laughing like maniacs, unbelieving ... "We're still HERE??"
    It changed our lives! -- I've decided to start a lightning Photo - discussion. -- Are you in?
