Shot from the roof of my house last weekend before the storm. Corrected some white balance and saturation because it got slightly blown out.

Well done for the capture, but next time try to get into a position where you cannot see any lights. That will enable you to use the "Bulb" setting and capture more than one lightening bolt

"f:" is "aperture:""
what you have listed as "aperture:" is in fact the shutter speed.
and as bob said use bulb, a small aperture, and a middle ISO.
that way you can hold the shutter open for a while (15-30 seconds) and not have to worry about lights in the picture as well. Use a tripod. If any lightning bolts strike in the 15-30 seconds, you have a cool shot. Otherwise try again. :)
