    I want to get a picture of lightning. I'm never in the right place at the right time with my camera. There are very few thunderstorms in Wyoming.

    Photo portfolio of Max Foster on 500px. St Paul's Cathedral, London, is a Church of England cathedral and seat of the Bishop of London. Its dedication to Paul the Apostle dates back to the original church on this site, founded in AD 604. St Paul's sits at the top of Ludgate Hill, the highest point in the City of London, and is the mother church of the Diocese of London. The present church dating from the late 17th century was built to an English Baroque design of Sir Christopher Wren, as part of a major rebuilding program which took place in the city after the Great Fire of London, and was completed within his lifetime. The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London, with its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, dominating the skyline for 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1962, and its dome is also among the highest in the world. In terms of area, St Paul's is the second largest church building in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral.

    Photo portfolio of Drew Medlin on 500px. A small storm cell popped up just a few miles North of my location and put out around five nice bolts before dissipating (this is the first of them). The lights are mainly from Albuquerque and Los Lunas, NM (~130km / 80 miles North) and along I-25 South of Albuquerque. You stare at your photographs long enough, sometimes you start to see shapes or patterns, as our minds often do. I see a figure dancing here... hence the title. Lightning, 2009.07.18, 059

    Photo portfolio of Michael Shainblum on 500px. ‎"Storm At Sea" A very rare sight in San Diego CA. Over almost never get lightning and I was lucky enough to be on Sunset Cliffs facing towards that pacific ocean to witness the spectacle. This image was shot pretty wide "40mm" and the lighting strikes were pretty close.

    Photo portfolio of Jimmy - on 500px. I tend to be careful when chasing lightning. Weather radar and general observation on location clearly suggested this bad boy was on his way off shore. A great reminder of how unpredictable the weather and electrical storms in particular can be! All the lightning was captured in one frame with the exception of the horizontal strike heading across right of frame. I grabbed him from a separate exposure that was terminated about 15s into the proposed 6mins exposure time- frankly I lost my nerve at this point and made a rapid retreat to the sanctuary of the headland behind me. This particular strike was accompanied by his mate who made contact with land less than 100m from where I was standing. The flash was so bright and loud that I all but lost my night vision. My sight was as normal within about 5 minutes, the ringing in my ears persisted for several hours. Feeling lucky is still with me! Those of you with a keen eye might recognize this shot as being the colour version of my last upload. Those with a good memory may recall that I uploaded a similar version several months ago. I took the original image down as I was never happy with the colour. No matter what I tried (PP skills are limited but I am trying to learn) I couldn’t get rid of a strange colour cast in the blacks. While the colour in this version may seem over the top to some and it is quite saturated it recreates for me the feeling of actually being there so I am comfortable with it. For anyone who may be interested in how this shot was taken, or capturing storms in general I have a simple technique which tends to work for me. The first thing I do it set a high ISO and perform some test exposures to get a feel for the correct exposure to render the foreground elements in the scene. In this case I got 30s @ f4 ISO 3200 so gut feel and a quick calculation got me to 6 minutes at ISO 200. I stuck with f4 and 200 ISO, when I started shooting the lightning was fairly distant and those settings have proved good for me is similar conditions- I am prepared to sacrifice some DOF and overall sharpness for greater definition in the lighting and less noise that a higher ISO might produce. Yep, its always a compromise. Its all good fun!
