Blinded by the Light…

I can’t see a thing out of my window right now thanks to the rain – except for when the huge 3-4 armed bolt of lightning that just ran up from the building in the center of my window. I’m still seeing spots, or rather lightning streaks. Whoa.

Can I really be blinded by the light? And why is it that your camera is never ready to capture moments like that when you need it?

Sadly, almost every person I’ve known that’s ever gotten a good lightning picture did it by accident. I shoot video for a living, and I still only have maybe five video clips of decent lighting in ten years.

I managed to take one good lightning picture last summer. It’s hard to get one!

I spent two entire storms (at least an hour each) with my camera. I set the shutter to 10 sec. and just kept clicking hoping I’d get something. I think I took at least 100 pictures for the one good one that I got.
