Lightning at the Grand Canyon by Rhavethstine Lightning at the Grand Canyon by Rhavethstine
Taken after the sun set, this completed the evening that my previous two submissions were shot on:
- Canyon Sunset
- Rainbow Over Desert View

The day was stunning, to say the least.

I have several other shots near this location, but this was one of the more elaborate bolts. If you guys like this stuff, I may have one more to show.

Technical Details:
:bulletblue: D70s
:bulletblue: 84s @ F/4.5
:bulletblue: ISO 200
:bulletblue: 18-70mm DX Nikkor @ 18mm

Nice!!

To prevent blurring the thunderstorms clouds I use a lightning detector to control my schutter in combination with shorter exposure. Then you are able to choose exposure properly for to the lightning brightness ...

I have been curious about those. What lightning detector do you use?
