Day 60 - January Lightning

My first ever attempt at photographing lightning.

It was only cloud lightning.  Now I’m hanging out for the next ‘proper’ storm!!

    Awesome shot. I love the way the lightning illuminates the clouds! How long was the exposure?

      Thanks Kent!
      Exposure time was 0.8s.
      It was my very first time photographing lightning – and I had been trying to do it in Manual mode (without success).
      I had no torch with me (need to remember to take one when I head out on night shoots) so just fiddled with the dial and ended up on the Night Portrait setting.
