Live from the show! (lightning)
Lens: FA 50 macro Camera: K20D Photo Location: Quebec city

Just shot this first lightning (for me). FA 50 macro stacked with a 4 stops neutral density filter and a polarizer. Otherwise I would have had to use an aperture small enough to see the screen through which this was shot

Enjoy! things are calming down here.

Thanks! I had to take quite a few to get both the focus, the exposure, and the timing right. I would have liked a more dramatic setting but that's what I had on hand
