Thor's Hammer

By Minty805
I don't think I've ever seen a more spectacular storm than Saturday night's. It had been rumbling up for some time, but then there was a period, a good half an hour, when there were flashes right across the horizon almost every other second. Incredible. But the storm, or storms, appeared to be all round, and, very sadly, a home was hit just a couple of miles away at Bembridge and was shown on TV badly damaged. A spectacular light show, but with a very dark side.
This is a stack of three, 60-second images, taken from Seaview, Isle of Wight, looking roughly west towards Ryde. I don't have a great deal of night or long exposure experience, so any hints or tips for improvement gratefully received.
Thanks for looking, and let's hope for more settled weather.

A very impressive result. Well done! I wonder if it would be useful to use an ND grad filter on the lower part of the image. I am not 100% sure about this but perhaps worth a try next time.

(Cracking) shot, we had the same storm just north of Southampton, with water pooring though our garden,and the road outside our Bungalow flooded only the second time in 30 years, luckily no damage to us or neighbours,

Spectacular, Allan. Not at all bad for one who says he has so little experience of such exposures.Smile
