It's Electric

Where in the world have I been. Well actually I went to Paris but that's a story for another day. I tried my hand at lightning photography and about 60 photos in finally figured out just how to make it work. Manual mode, F/22 ISO 100, bulb mode, exposed until I saw lightning. The shutter stays open for as long as you tell it too so there are a couple rules: you need a remote, a tripod/steady surface, and it can't be too light out or you'll just get a white photo. Also, you need to be seeing the actually strikes, just flashes doesn't really work. I took these photo from my bedroom window (don't get struck by lightning people!).
