Thunder & lightning over Prague

"A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightning."
~ James Dicky

Rains rolled in last night and it’s still miserable out there right now. The good in all this however, was the fact that the rains were preceded by an interesting light show.

I am learning the simple fact that capturing a lightning strike, be it ground or inner cloud isn’t easy. Much like fireworks there is a balance of how long the shutter can afford to stay open before you lose cloud definition or over expose areas where the greatest level of activity is. I still have a long way to go. Also just gave myself another excuse for really really wanting a Sigma 20mm f/1.8 or the Sigma 15mm f/2.8!

I also threw my back out while sleeping and today is the World Wide Photo Walk in Prague!. Should be interesting.
