where i was last night
As I left a friend’s house around 10:00 last night, there was a massive lightning storm passing us to the north (I would later discover that it was near the Kansas-Nebraska border, a good 60 miles away). It was putting on quite a display, I actually had my camera with me, and my family was in California (and so not expecting me home soon), so I drove out to the local sports complex to take some pictures.
I used a mini-tripod to support the camera, a cable release, and a decently long exposure to capture this. The light on the grass comes from the parking lot lights that were nowhere near us, just to give you an idea of how long the camera shutter was open.
ISO 250, 15 seconds, f8, 40mm
