Five Shots: Backyard Drama


Tonight a lightning storm came through the valley in AZ, and I took these shots looking out out my backyard toward Sycamore Canyon.






It’s hard to capture lightning!

Which one do you like most?

    • Thank you–they were hard! I sat there for an hour trying to “catch” a bolt. I must have taken a hundred pictures before I caught a few. Glad you stopped by! πŸ™‚


      • I think capturing a bolt is incredibly hard. It always makes you feel good when you have a couple good ones.

        You’re welcome. I like checking out your posts!


    • Thanks! It took forever. I ought to figure out the device on my camera that allows me to take several simutaneously. Oh, where did I put that user manual…


  1. I personally know how difficult it is. I was guessing when to push the shutter. More times then not I was off by a Micro second. I was using panoramic setting thinking that would give me a bettor chance. You did well capturing the bolts you did. Congrads and please….. if there is anyone out there with a bettor idea of how to do this ….let me know!
