lightning at sunset

Newer Older

Shot at Toronto's Centre Island. A great example of being in the right place at the right time. My sister and I went to the Island after work for some photos and this amazing sunset started to form, so I quickly put the camera on a tripod and started shooting intervals (using the Pclix) for about an hour hoping to capture the lightning. I have 5 lightning shots out of around 600 photos and this is the best one.

Bigger size is better.

UPDATE: My 3rd book; daily dose of imagery - vol 3 is available now. You can order directly from my blurb page or from my books page. Either way blurb will ship the books directly, the sooner you order the better chance you have to get it in time before end of the year. (you'll notice a small increase in price, and it's because blurb is offering premium paper now which is better and heavier stock.

    And it's still in your stream. you are taking the product of others and posting it as your own. You've cropped out copyright symbols to hide what you've been doing. That is theft.

    You delete my comments telling people that the images are not yours and you blocked me from telling them in your stream. You know this is wrong. You are violating copyright law, hurting the value of images you take from others, and violating the spirit and terms of use of Flickr. Pathetic.
