Lightning Over Caves Beach

Lightning Over Caves Beach

Thunder and lightning
Crash across the evening sky
Like two gods at war

We’ve had a couple of huge thunderstorms over the last week. This was on Friday night and the lightning strikes were spectacular. The storm lasted for at least a good hour and there must have been hundreds of strikes like this lighting up the sky.

I’ve never taken photos of lightning before. It was quite interesting as unlike with most subjects, it’s very hard to tell where or when lightning is going to strike so it’s as much a matter of using your senses to anticipate where it’s going to appear as it is working out what settings you need to use. This one came out pretty well in the end.

Not bad for a first attempt if I do say so myself. 🙂
