My first ever picture of lightning. When I took it I wasn’t yet paying atenyion to the camera setings so much and don’t remember what they were. I used a Canon 40D with the 28-135mm IS.
This was a scene that was quite noisy and a little scary in person. The wind was blowing this thing all over the place and i wasn’t sure where it was going next. The lightning didn’t seem that safe either. That being said, I think the photo came out very peaceful.
Wildfire started by lightning just south of Goodyear, Arizona June 25th, 2008.
