Not much to see if you compare to storms in USA / Poland / Germany. But hey, atleast something. These are taken in Finland.

Mesoscale convective system. I had to run to my car 30 seconds after I took this photo, it was like being in a washing machine because gustfront caught me sooner than I expected it to. Odd colours are actually real, reddish hue comes from sunlight and green is apparently caused by hail inside the cloud.

Great images. Curious as to how you captured the lightening. Did you use a "trigger" device or was it timing/intuition on your part? I love lightening shots. Dangerous but spectacular.

Thanks! During thunderstorms skies are usually very dark, expecially at night. I often use 5-10s exposure times, so if lightning strikes during that time it will show up on the picture. Brightness of the lightning depends on ISO and aperture. Obviously most of it will be overexposed if you want to see any landscape with it.

During daytime this is much more difficult without trigger because shutterspeed is too fast. I bought a trigger but havent had chance to use it yet. At night Im probably still going to use continous shooting of long exposures because I can use images to create timelapse aswell.

Great Shots! How do you manage to get perfect timings?
