About a week ago, we had a storm system move through that included some pretty spectacular lightning and a couple of scary tornados. I've always wanted to photograph lightning, so when last night's storm rolled through, I got in the car, drove over to Fort Stevens, parked, set the camera on the dashboard, and started taking timed exposures.
Out of 38 timed shots, these are the two best. About four more photos have a hint of lightning in them and the rest have none at all. I've obviously got a long way to go in figuring out how to properly photograph this natural phenomenon!
