WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!! finally

OMG i have been wanting to catch lightning in a photo in like forever...

i am totally amazed with this weather phenom.

so last night i went to to put cookie up for the night and i kept seeing flashes of light, not normal lightning light but bright white light.....i have trees in the yard so i had to walk in to the pasture to see what the deal was.

I ran inside the house , grabbed the camera (point and shoot), and ran back out.

i was out there for 20 minutes, trying to get the setting just right?

i am hopeless at manual settings and i wanted to use the digital to SEE what i catch instantly.
so i used the sport feature.... they are not great, but to me....AWESOME!
now to get better, but i am so excited.......finally, lightning in a picture

Very kewl! Lightening is soooooooooo tricky to catch and I still have yet to do it properly. I too am a storm freak and I love to watch the lightening shows.

I am so impressed you were able to capture it.
I love lightening storms (as long as I'm safely inside!).
