Cheers Steve. It worked out quite nice. Never tried (before or since) to do lightning shots. Fortunately I had my tripod with me. Don't know if its the right way to do it but I set it at ISO 400 and fairly large aperture as it was quite dark. Set up how I wanted for what foreground I had (only had the 10-20 with me so needed a foreground). Set it to bulb and then kept taking shots with the remote control of a few seconds duration - waiting for lightning strikes. As soon as I saw a flash I closed the shutter again. Worked out well on this occasion but maybe not so much for the other 20 or so...

If you ever come across to this neck of the woods give me a shout. I know some quite decent locations with decent pubs always on hand :-)
Thanks Mark,

It's hard tp believe they'd build pubs at some of those mountain locations you frequent. ;-)

I was only wondering if you'd tried a Panorama (seeing that MF might be out of the question). I have tried a few and got a number of 150mp files that have astounding detail using a 50mm lens and manual exposure and focus on my K-5. It's quite easy to stitch the files together on Photoshop or a number of free apps too I believe.

Some of the first from the K-5

The first 2 are w/ the FA100/2.8 macro and the second 2 are with the Sigma 17-70/2.8-4 OS. So far, I'm very pleased.
