June 17th

What a night.  Some days you just get lucky.  This particular night, I had three separate opportunities to capture lightning.  I was basically shooting from 7pm until midnight.  The storms just kept building and rolling in.  These are just some of my favorite but I actually have quite a few more from this night.  The video I posted is just to show you how frequent the lightning was striking.  I wish I would have shot it at a slightly larger aperture so it would have been a little brighter, but, you live and you learn.

  7. Great captures Scott! I think they are plenty bright and the smaller aperture gave you some nice starring on the control tower lights!
