Very good capture of the lightening strike: well timed shot. I see this is your first posting, Simon. Keep up the good work, mate.

Well done for placing the lightning strike directly on the third ... or rather, commanding god to place it directly on the third!

The sunset colours really lift this.

Thanks everyone.

As for timing, It's just a long exposure aimed at an active cell. All you can do is expose for the ambient, keeping your shutter open for as long as possible. Even if you do all you can to increase your chances, there is certainly a large element of luck in any lightening shot. Lightening isn't really my thing, I try to avoid it, but this storm rolled past my porch so how could I not grab my tripod and camera.

Great Shot Simon! I hope you'll post more pictures.
