Lightning - 050610 - 2 by GTX-Media Lightning - 050610 - 2 by GTX-Media
Lightning overlooking the Pittsburgh International Airport. Sadly, this lightning was a good distance away (10+ miles), so I had to crop into the full sized image to focus on the lightning, thus the quality is rather low. However, I figured that, while the quality overall is low, the beauty of this shot is worthy of DA.

How long did the storm last and where was it?

My description states where it's at. I know it lasted several hours, but typically most lightning storms I don't stay around for more than an hour. That's about how long it takes for the storm to reach me and produce rain, in which case, I can't get any really good shots.

great shot!
I wonder, how much time you had to wait to catch something like that during a storm?

Normally if I can get ahead of a storm quickly enough I can get at least one shot within 15 minutes.

This one here I was actually almost hesitant to post due to its overall poor quality, however the image captured I thought was stunning enough to be posted here on DA, thus here it is.

The noise level along with the overall compression around the lightning itself. I knew I was being too hard on myself with this pic about that though, and being way to picky, thus why it was posted.

I go through my old photos every time I go to post more on DA just to see if there's any I overlooked because of my ideas back then...

Oh, wow. I like the middle bolt looks like it's ripping through the clouds. Or something.
