This is the first time I have captured a bolt of tripod so I was snapping from the hall outside my apartment. Sorry for the blur but bolts were flying and my excitement wasn’t holding the camer steady.

    Good shot with no tripod, I have been try to get one of these pictures also, no luck

  • Thank you! I was so excited when I saw that I actually caught the bolt - storms around here move fast and had no time to set up…. I just grabbed the camera and hoped for the best…. first time I’ve not snapped AFTER the flash… LOL

    What a shot! Wonderful. It is so alive. A sharp powerful bolt of lightining, One of dad’s favorite experiences to watch. Love it.

    No wonder your hands were shaking. Lightening is a real THREAT and I feel this shot emphasizes
    that fact.
