Vivid shot Phil, it needs patience to take this kind of shot.


Cheers

Nearly, but not quite, as much patience as it takes to get a response in the forum nowadays!

Thanks lowliferider

I was gutted as I had a great location but got drenched and flooded out so had to move. The area is was in is one large construction site so location 2 had lots of buildings under construction - I may try to process the shots, we'll see. It might make an interesting foreground!

Cool shot. Well worth the effort. Just looking at the exif data, 8second exposure. Thought it would be quicker.

I usually check new post when I log on, this is the first time this has come up for me.

Thanks khalismur, elbeasto and Richard.

Quite a simple shot really. I just set up on a tripod and fired away at around 6 seconds per exposure. There were plenty of stikes hitting and during one exposure I got this strike.

The original location would have been better with a skyline but I got washed out by a hailstorm
