Marden lightning

I thought I had ruined this photo. It was a time lapse with an exposure of about 30 seconds. However on this one the phone rang and so its exposure time was about 7 minutes! Needless to say it was the best of the lot! August 21 1987

    Puts my lightening shots to shame, but then again I am a novice who has only been going a few months.

    Funnily enough lightning photographs are the easiest of "special" photos to take. The camera only requires a time setting shutter and away you go. Ooop sorry. You do need a good thunderstorm and a FILM camera. (as far as I know digital cameras do not permit exposures much longer than 20 secs. The exposure for this picture was 7 minutes!

    "...and a FILM camera. (as far as I know digital cameras do not permit exposures much longer than 20 secs."

    Ha ha ha ha ha! you're funny! As someone who has done both, digital is MUCH easier! ALL SLR cameras have this capibility (and many point and shoot as well), just to let you know.

    At any rate, this is a stunning photo, and I just started the Top 20 Lightning Group, and it needs a little help getting off the ground, you should consider adding this, it would do well.

    [edit] I just re-read my comment and thought it sounded a bit condescending; don't get me wrong; I love film. I just hate the proliferation about the “supposed evils of digital.” Both are great so long as you have the right gear.
