D200 - Awesome Lightning Storm (broadband)

Last night we had a great lightning storm in NYC. It was totally rainless and the lightning strikes were non stop for almost a hour. Honestly, it was really amazing to watch.

As to technique for these images, I used simple "brute force"

  • Set camera on my tripod and locked the shutter for continuous frames. Later just culled the image with strikes. I had well over 60 images

  • Nikon D200, RAW, iso 100, auto aperture (-1ev), incad WB, f4.5

  • nikkor 24-70 and 12-24

  • composite stacking done with stairtrails.de

  • George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River Balcony Shot
