The hi-rises of Main Beach with lightning going out to sea. Forgot my wet weather gear today and caught on the wrong side of the bridge as I was watching a cell to the north and one moved in behind me. Overlooking the broadwater, Gold Coast (06/12/08)

    stunning work mate, as ever…how long was the exposure on this one?

  • I try for no more than 30seconds at night, boats have a tendency to move turn and being festive time, lots of traffic on the water

    What a shot. I’m too very curious about your exposure time. And your aperture

  • 30 seconds @ f5, iso 100 on the canon about one stop under exposed on camera’s meter
