An electrical storm blew through a short time ago and figured I've give it a go getting some lightning shots. These are shot from the porch of my ground floor apartment. Next time i might head up to the third floor see if I can get better shots. With 7D 24-105mm 3.5 sec f5 ISO 200

Good timing on these. I think a wider angle would give a better perspective.

I agree - problem is the surroundings of the apartment doesn't lend itself to do that - too many lights, power lines etc, trees etc. Need to get higher to get better shots.

We don't get many t-storms around here so I always look forward to seeing them on POTN.

Just don't put yourself in harms way just to get the shot next time like some of these storm chasers!
