Ok, this is what my life is like. One of the best strikes of the night and the camera is out of focus!!!!!
A little hint to all budding Lightning photographers…
When your camera is set to manual focus, and youre shooting in total darkness… DO NOT use your shirt sleeve to wipe off rain droplets from the front of your lens!!!!
As careful as you are, a hudredth of a degree turn on the lens is enough to make that Cracking shot…..a pile of crap.
