Not exactly the “perfect storm” … but some lightnings nevertheless!

How clever would you feel in the middle of a storm holding a carbon tripod?

The interval timer is a luxury, but setting up the proper exposure time was not easy.

Nécessaire for the event:

– plastic bags for head & camera
– tissue to remove rain drops every now and then from the lens
– wide lens to capture as much sky as possible
– interval timer shooting every 13 secs with exposure 10 secs long to have no gaps
– tripod
– memory cards (out of 180 pictures, 4 were with lightnings)
– luck

… maybe the next one will be a perfect storm!

      You cannot imagine how many wonderful, perfect, huge lightnings came down on the opposite side … and of course rotating the camera had the same effect of changing lane in a traffic jam 😀
