Lake Giles, Australia Thunder and Lightning

Finally a chance to shoot some REAL lightning, not flashing clouds 30km away!!
Very lucky to not be getting rained on, yet having great lightning close enough to really get a good chance at documenting it. Some trial and error eventually turned into several pretty lucky shots – how else can you aim the camera in pitch darkness!As a side note, several of these images are composites of a few exposures, which is fairly self evident. I haven’t been quite as selective of the uploaded images as usual, but I think it’s worth seeing the different ways the images can be layered.
