Thunder Storm

3 03 2009


Well I been back in Perth now for almost a week and got to say the light has been great here compaired to my week over in Sydney . Bit of a disapiotment about the light over in NSW , but I’v made up for it the last few days in Perth 🙂 got a lot of photos to go through .

One thing I have all ways wanted to photography but had not had the chance so far is lighting . I finally got my chance there other day standing in a paddock and watching the thunderstorm role in snapped of a few single long expsorues on the mark II at a mid range ISO  . I lost my wirless remote while shoting this day so I was having to to bulb exposures holding the shutter open on the camera . Got a few shot with lighting streaks in them it was a bit far away in the distance but will have to do for now until the next thunderstorm .  This shot probally had the best lighting streaks in it out of the lot .

Where abouts is this….?
I have to say i am not a fan of the colours in this shot. Some of the foreground is too white and the sky has to much magenta…
The lightning is cool though and is certainly something I have wanted to shoot for years but havent had a chance!

Those lightning strikes were awesome weren’t they? Humidity sucked though.

Whoa, I’m still in shock from the sky. The sky is so bright, you don’t notice the lightening. I’d tone down the colours and get the focus on the lightening and the tree. Congratulations, its not a stitch either. 🙂

We’ve been getting great cloud lately.

We’ll have to try and shoot again sometime this year.

How did you manage that?

I think the colours and composition are spot on Kirk, a big yep from me! I like the hi key feel it has.

The clouds look wonderful, but how on earth did you expose long enough for them to blur without bulb exposure?

Resizing photos is difficult. Especially when you’re handling hi-res stuff like your image here. However, yours isn’t one of those. It’s just flawless.
