Lightning from nearby thunderstorm, at night

lightning from nearby storm at night in Nashville - Stephen Frasier PhotosConsidering — and I do mean considering — this photo turned out a little better than expected. It was the only decent lightning photograph out of 35 or so attempts… Thank God for digital photography.

Yes, it is a generally poor photograph from a technical standpoint (as well as other standpoints); however, considering the shot was taken…

  • at around 2:30am
  • with no tripod; hands only
  • with the shutter open for over two seconds

…I’ll take it!

I love storms, I enjoy thunder immensely, and I’m awestruck by lightning. It was a good time!
