I took this a few minutes ago as a storm passed our place...

It's the first picture of lightning I've ever captured. A little lackluster, yeah... but kinda cool nonetheless!



  1. It has a very kodachrome quality...the picture, not the lightning!

  2. Wow, it seems random since the rest of Provo looks so sunny. Way to have the timing down Barry.

  3. That's really cool! We've had some crazy lightning storms up at Bear River, too, and today it snowed...

  4. I'm impressed. You have to have pretty good timing to catch lightning. And ditto to Merilee's comment. There's quite a juxtaposition of sunshine and storm in this photo.

  5. Provo looks brighter than it actually was because the picture was extremely overexposed. I stopped down as far as I could go on my f-stop, but at that time of day, with an 8 second exposure, unless you have some sort of light reducing filter (which I do not) you're going to get a very over exposed image. I was able to tone it down in photoshop which is why it has that real thick kodachrome look to it.

  6. Dude, way too go! That is awesome that you have reached the next level of now have "lightning skills."

  7. Sweet shot! Next storm you should come to our place. We see some SWEET lighting bolts from our deck.

  8. They give us those nice bright colors
    They give us the greens of summers
    Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, Oh yeah
    I got a Nikon camera
    I love to take a photograph
    So mama don't take my Kodachrome away
