Lightning caught in the act by BB pal Scott Matthews on Captiva Island, Florida, looking west over the Gulf of Mexico.
I've always wanted to catch lightning, but I've never had much luck —
this time I tried another technique — I set my camera to "bulb" mode
(which means a manual start/stop to the exposure, rather than a
specified shutter speed). So I would start the exposure and just wait
for something to happen, and then stop the exposure. This one was 37
But even in bulb mode, I still had to get pretty lucky to catch this.
