We had a marvellous electric show this morning around Cape Town. This was taken from inside my car with the camera balanced on the camera bag, with the wind blowing and the occassional squall of rain coming through. It wasn't the best conditions to shoot, hence the movement in the image.

Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 5
Av( Aperture Value ) 5.6
Metering Mode Partial Metering
ISO Speed 100
Lens EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Focal Length 24.0 mm

    That's also quite an amazing lectric show you got there my friend. My initial plan was to move my ass to the most northern part of the Netherlands, where we got great shorelines too. But I got stuck somewhere halfway because I didn't want to miss any more lightning :)
