Yea I'm alive ^^.
Been very very busy latley so I haven't really had the prior to go out photo or such, nuff said here's a shot from last nights storm that swept over.

The weather was insanley hard, the wind almost picked up my tripod several times as I stood there taking these 10sec+ shots ;D.
This scene took a few attemps to capture, as you can imagine. Around 100 shots fired away. This was the last shot I took ^^.

THIS IS PURLEY A PHOTO and no damn manip! Thought I'd say that before someone mention that the lightning looks like a PS-Plugin, this is 99% Nature 1% Canon!

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Photo information: Canon 400D / Rebel XTi l Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4.5 MACRO l ISO 400, f/11, 13sec

Photograph taken in Europe / Sweden / Falun / Lugnet

Jag måste verkligen undra hur himlen fick den där färgen, är det på grund av blixtrarna?

Färgen på himlen är en blandning av ljuset från blixtrarna blandat med ljuset från stan + att det är en lång slutartid vilket gör att många av färgerna blir väldigt djupa och kraftiga.

If I'd still be up there I'd try get something better. THe composition on that piece is just plain shitty, the only cool thing is the lightnings alone hehe.

I'll see what kinda weather it's when I'm up next time =).

Chers

Me too! It's to bad we rarley have GOOD thunderstorms, they're usually so tiny or just way to crappy and by crappy I mean when there is more rain in the air than in the frikkin seas flying around hehe. I have no cover for the camera yet so I can't shoot while it rains and especially not INSIDE a thunderstorm ;D

Thank you very much. I'm a HUGE fan of lightning myself, I love a good thunderstorm, the bigger the better ^^. I still respect it so I'm not foolish but I can't help myself just standing with my jaw dropped while the lightning strikes my feet ;D
