Lightning

I've been trying forever to catch a great lightning shot. Finally, last evening, just after sunset, I was able to catch this one.

While it's not great, it sure is a lot more than I expected. It's fairly easy to catch lightning photos at night, since all you need to do is leave the shutter open on Bulb and close it once you catch the shot, but this one was beyond my greatest expectations.

I guessed at the settings, and while this one was a little underexposed, I was able to pull it out by shooting in RAW mode. Lucky for me, it hadn't started to rain, yet. As a matter of fact, it never did rain. All we got was an excellent light show.

Let me know what you think of this one.
