Part II: Wish I had a Lightning Safety Suit and an Armored Car

No, this is not the greatest lightning photo ever. BUT, I was happy to get this! Sitting in my car, hand holding the camera resting on the window ledge, on the long exposure setting. No tripod/lightning rod, no cable release, and the mirror wasn’t locked up. It’s a little fuzzy from movement of my hands and me breathing, and maybe the mirror movement. A couple of other times lighting occurred but didn’t register on the shots. I played around with the settings, lowered the ISO to 100 and made the aperture at 22. The shutter was open 5 seconds. The rest of my attempts totally stink. So yea! At least I got this one. Now if I had my safety suit I could really go for it, tripod and all!

    • Thank you very much! I like your plan~ I am a bit unsure of the whole blog awards thing. What is the proper etiquette regarding them, etc? Sometimes they seem a bit chain letter-ish, or pyramid scheme-ish. So, I like and understand this! It is great! I will try to spread the word. I hope I am not being too suspicious or jaded about the whole thing. 😉 I am fairly new to the world of blogging, but I love it!
