Great shot. Did you use a lightning trigger or just get lucky?


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

That's the best lightning shot I've seen in a long time! I'll take luck anytime! ; )

About 50 or so six-second exposures. I missed a lot more, but I think this was the best of the night.

Yep. That's luck. The thousands of local camera owners who were not there or were unprepared or didn't like the long odds of success or were unskilled were just unlucky.

I enjoyed seeing other examples of luck on your flickr stream: https://www.flickr.com​/photos/shorkey/ (external link)
