August 23, 2010: I have finally gotten a step closer to my photographic dream – a great lightning shot! While this is still far off from my vision, it’s one of the best that I’ve taken. Last Friday night the lightning was absolutely crazy! True to my curse, by the time I got my tripod and camera setup on a hill (the same one that I took the fireworks shots from a little while back), the lightning began to die off. I actually grabbed about 10 shots with clear strikes. This shot has a lot going on and will take a little while to look at to truly enjoy it. As soon as I saw the strike happen, I opened the shutter. There are at least 4 different strikes here – only one was a ground, the other three visible in the photo stretched across the sky out of my lens’ view.
