Before and During



After, it will be too dark to see.

The night before last we had a fierce thunderstorm here, in the Netherlands. My 3 year old son woke up crying. When I entered the room he complained ‘He does boom!’ and explained that he thought that a sprinter and a doubledecker (two types of trains, we live close to the train track) had collided.
My wife explained that it was actually the clouds that were breaking.

How long was the picture exposed? 1 second? 10? 15? 30?

I’ve tried to take lightning pics, but haven’t had any success so far. I either get the whole sky lit up (if I make a long exposure) or everything dark as the pit (if I take a short exposure).

Try the fireworks setting if you have one on your digital camera. Mine does great fireworks, just haven’t had the opportunity to try it on lightening…but may get that chance really soon as the severe storm link on my toolbar just started flashing!
