Last night on the way home from the kids rodeo it was thundering and lightening really bad. We talked about how cool of a picture it would be so we hurried and tried to get things set up. We took probably over 100 pictures and got about 24 with the actual lightening in them. It was really kind of fun. I had the lighting set at flash, my ISO was at 320 and then it was on shutter speed and most definitely on a tripod. At first I tried to take them on auto focus and it was not working, then we set it on manual focus and we were able to get these pretty cool pictures.
