If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change.

One of the things that I really want to photograph is lightening. Nice shot.

Any tips on recording a bolt? Just good timeing?

I like 3 to 5 second exposures with a tripod. :) Look for a general area where the strikes are happening. Use a remote if you got one.

Its tough during the day because the exposure is short. Even at f32 and ISO 100.

Nice catch of the lightning Charles. The stormy clouds and the houses all together convey a feeling of threat.
Funny you should say that. About 5 minutes after this image was captured a funnel cloud starting forming almost on top of our house. I was so busy getting the kids and wife down to safety that I forgot to push the shutter release. By the time I got them moving it closed up. At that point I realized I didn't capture it. :evil:
