Thor's Valentine (Heart-shaped Lightning Bolt)

    Newer Older

    This is my very first attempt at photographing lightning, so I'm still trying to get the hang not just of shooting it, but of processing the results, too. These are the mountains just south of Las Vegas, and no, the photo is not manipulated in any way. That's really a heart-shaped lightning bolt.

      Wow - indeed an amazing capture.
      Hardly get any such thunderstorms in Northern California - and seeing something like this is quite a treat.
      What was the exposure?

      For a first attempt I think the lightning is trying to tell you something, in quite a dramatic way.
