Night Lightning…Shazam!

Came home tonight after my violin lesson and I realised there were flashes of lightning in the sky but no thunder.

So as usual, I trotted out the 5D and patiently waited at the window. Here are three of my best shots, in descending order of best shot to not so good shot. If you peer closely at the high res versions, you can actually see the streaks of lightning stretch across the sky horizontally.

For the shutter geeksā€¦Settings: ISO 3200, f2.8, 1/20sec.
