We had a wicked thunderstorm for about 5 hours (I think it was about 3 storms back to back) the one day while I was in BC. The lightning was fabulous, and I tried to get some lightning shots. It would have helped if I had my tripod but I seldom use it so didn't even bring it on this trip. Also I couldn't remember how to adjust the shutter speed to make a longer shot to better my odds of catching a lightning strike. Um, now I remember - it's so simple, duh! I was trying to play with the self timer which is not what I needed to do. Just adjust the shutter speed - do you think I could think of that at the time? Nope! Anyhow here is one of my failed attempts at catching the lightning.

Welcome to my world! Thinking of things too late. Bummer, but still beautiful even without dramatic lightning.

Wow, it's not often we get a sky like that. It is dramatic. I forget often how to do things then when I remember it's so easy and I get so annoyed. There is so much to learn with digital cameras, things aren't obvious like on the old cameras, it's all a sequence you need to remember.
