Lightning

For an amateur photographer like me, taking lightning pictures is really a difficult task, particularly when you don't have any knowledge of photography and quality equipments. Here are few pictures, I took during a thunder storm about two weeks ago with my Cannon Powershot SD 770 IS camera. With some other drawbacks you will also observe hands shake while taking these pictures.

Oh Birdy, these lightning shots are wonderful! During thunderstorms I love to sit on the verandah and watch lightning streak across the sky. But pictures? I haven't managed anything good enough to post!! I like the third photo the best.

Also for a Pro it's not that easy to capture lightnings, believe me! I did it twice in my whole life and they were not that good like yours!!!
And, I don't like thunderstorms and lightnings anyway... since then,I didn't gave them a try anymore :)

Yours look great!

Gorgeous shots Birdy. I've too have been trying for years to capture photos of lightening. I have to ask how did you do it, and get them to turn out so beautifully?

I've never managed to take any lightning photo. That isn't easy at all. You have done a gret job with these photos. They are just fantastic.
