Fascinating shot, Paul. From the condition of the lights I’d guess that when the flash and thunder came, you jumped.Re: LightningReply #2 on: May 3, 2022 at 3:25 pm
Thanks, Russ. At the time of that shot, we lived in a high-rise. It was the most intense lightning I had ever seen, by orders of magnitude, which is saying something living in Texas most of my life. I had left my tripod in my car in the garage and assuming the storm wouldn’t rage that long I was afraid if I tried to retrieve it, the action would be over by the time I got back up to our condo. So I wound up shooting handheld, bracing the camera against the railing of our balcony. That was a 2 sec exposure. As it turned out, this monster raged on for about 30 minutes. Never seen anything like it before or since. Here’s another weather event shot from our balcony. This one led the evening news.

That tornado image is really strong. BW did it justice. Nice.

I agree with Jeremy. Well done, Paul.
