Sunset of the Gods

December 7th, 2013

I stepped outside of my house last weekend to an amazing sunset during a thunderstorm. I grabbed my gear and ran up on a hill (most of the lightning was in the distance), set my camera on a tripod and focused on the storm just as it started raining on me. I quickly set my shutter speed to 1/3 of a second so as to increase my chances of catching lightning and set my intervalometer to take a shot every second

I spent the next 3 minutes holding my shirt over my camera to protect it from the rain. I think it was worth it.

Apple Aperture, Slik tripod.

Nikon D800, Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD.

Photo Settings: 48mm, f/6, 1 second, ISO 50.

What a cracker! (pun intended...). Nice work, I reckon it was worth the effort too.

Beautiful shot! I'd have to say it's one of the nicest photos of lightning I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing it!
