I see in your EXIF that you snapped both pictures at 1/60 of a second. How did you manage to anticipate and catch two lightning strikes?!!. You must have some fast reflexes. Amazing.

This thread will keeps folks busy for awhile.... lol


Thanks so much Don!

Frankly I just ran and grabbed the camera and left it on Auto. The strikes were very frequent and the EM5 can just snap so fast!

After a strike I would wait a minute and start snapping and got lucky twice. I spent a total of about 5 minutes before I had to close the door and get the towels to stop the kitchen puddles I get these days with my leaking patio door and our front line placement when it comes to storms and winds.
