all the big flashes were obscured by neighbours trees or happened when i put the camera away so just caught some little ones

On my 'would like to do' list; capture lightning. Well done! Forst one for me - very subtle and over the tree silhouette

That's a pretty cool take on it though. I'd be happy with that, looks cool.

Can i ask how? They look really good.

They do look good - especially in blue.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

richandfleur, sigma 17-70mm @17mm f5.6- f8 iso 200, on a tripod, focus at infinity, wired remote then its all down to luck on what the storm gives you. so i wait for the lightning to start to get the general direction to point the lens, see where most activity occurs, lock the shutter open and release beefore you over expose, so really as much luck as judgement but having the lens at its widest takes in a lot of sky giving the best hope of catching something, unfortunately my neighbours trees as well. the blue sky thing i got from a guy in the states a long time ago, normally you see a lot of muddy skies but all you need do to get rid of that is use Tungsten White balance.
Was hoping for another like this from 4yrs ago but no such luck. Sigma 10-20mm on gorillapod on the floor just inside back door
