Double Strike. by Andrew Murrell


Available to buy on…

Taken during the same storm chase as Umina Beach Storm. I had only JUST recieved my New Nikon D300 and I had the chance to give it a good run. This shot was taken with the 70-200 VR lens set at 70mm. The storm was a good 10km away and it was moving slowly across Pittwater and was an easy target from Umina beach. After using the LiveView to focus I trained the camera where most of the Lightning was going off. The camera was set to f7.1 and 25 second exposure. I was so happy when the first strike went off just after I had opend the shutter, then to have a second flash a few seconds before it closed was the icing on the cake. The cloud detail is also astounding.
