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.

It's a very dramatic sky even without 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.
