I just love storms. They're the only weather I actually like, strangely :confused:

This is gorgeous! I love taking pictures of lightning and watching lightning and thunder during storms. But I have to take videos and take screenshots from those because I can't do what you have done here. This is as good as I can get: [link]
Don't you need special equipment for this? By that I mean more than just a camera.

Well it sure needs some special equipment, especially a tripod is almost a must if you wanna settle it on a position you wan't, hehe.

You're very welcome! Yes, a tripod is definitely a must. The human body can not hold completely still, and that blurs photos. Thanks for the reply. :)

Offtopic, but how amazing would it be if we could someday harness lightning as a power source? ^^;

DaXXe Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Ayee, i've heard about the considerations about it too [link]
But would mostly only be a benefit for areas whose lightnings appears most often =P
Thankies for comment!

Even then, they'd get enough power to send a bit off to neighboring cities I'd wager.
