    The chicken was fine. Nothing distracts me from my grill. :wink:
     
  4. ok now that puts my strike to shame... damn!! That is freakin awesome!

    How did you time that? Were you just shooting continuously until the lightning struck? Or was it just a coincidence?

    Thanks.

    The lightning was hitting in that area with some consistency. I started trying to time it. This was my third frame. :smile:
     
  6. Very nice photo, I barely see thunder down here in NorCal!
     
  7. So on your grilling forum you talk about the chicken you made one handed while taking pictures of lightning!!!! LOL:biggrin:

    Nice shot!
     
  8. Nice catch! I tried shooting some handheld the other day but it was just all over the place so I had no luck.
     
  9. Love it! I need to make an attempt this summer.
