Here is one of the four lightning photos I took the other night. Yes, I finally successfully photographed the electrical phenomenon in the summer skies! What is so special about that? Well, I had NO tripod. These storms caught me totally by surprised and found me unprepared. Without a tripod I had to find a hard solid surface and hold down the shutter by hand. Do you have any idea how hard that is to do and not move the camera the tiniest bit? I'm amazed any photos came out successfully and vow to not be caught off guard again.
