2015 Storm Side Challenge

I did not get any sleep last night because a beautiful lightning storm came through
About 3am I was like ooo I need to get to bed. LOL

I totally missed all the awesome shots of the spider lightning that goes across the sky, but I was able to capture FINALLY
My first bolt from the K-3

Use this spring and summer to capture any storm/lightning photos.
Share here when you get something :0)

I think this year will be a fun surprise of awesome storms

Good idea for a side challenge. I'll be watching for storms this summer.

Ooo, this could be my favorite side challenge ever. I love lightning! Whether or not I will see lightning and be able to enter is yet to be determined, but I'll certainly be watching.

I shot this about a year ago. I had ridden my bike out to one of my usual turnaround points out around Benbrook lake at the top of a hill. The sky was clear except for one cloud off in the distance. Then it started lighting. But the sky by me was clear. I had brought my DSLR and a flimsy, but portable tripod. Out of about 150 shots, this one was the best of the bunch, though it still wasn't up to being challenge material, or I would have used it in the freestudy that month.

Downtown Fort Worth can be seen in the lower left corner.

I thought the storm was over the mid cities area about 25 miles away. I found out later that it was actually over the city of McKinney, which is a good 50 or 60 miles away on the far northeast side of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Someone else posted a photo on Facebook that looked like this storm was over downtown Dallas, but was still a fair amount away from there.

Stacked several shots to get that one looking that way. Lighter color blend mode IIRC.

One of my favorite subjects to shoot. Unfortunately we haven't had a good one here in years. This is the best one I shot so far:
