Re: Lightning Storm

Haha you should have seen the rig I had going. I went down there with no intention of seeing this. I was still in my pajamas and figured I would have missed it but the whole system just settled out over the ocean for about 2 hours! I had one of those 5 inch mini tripods that come with point and shoots, then my 5n with the SEL18200 on it! I had to fold up some towels I found in my back seat and position them under the lens and then put the whole thing on the roof of my car. God it was messy. I have a cheap tripod at home but at least its a normal one. Can't believe I didn't bring it. Oh well, still got some cool shots. Here are a few more.

Look at the exif on the first shot. It was one of the only good ones I got with the Sigma 30. It was only .8 seconds exposure with 100 iso. It was pitch black out. Imagine how bright that strike was.

Thanks for the kind words!
