Hi Gary - This is so very phenomenal! I have been studying this image (and your previous one - both at similar settings - this one at f16 1/15 of a second and the previous at f16 1/20 of a second) and I am picking myself up off the floor each time :-) - I would be lucky to grab a lightning strike on a 15-20 second timing, let alone anytning faster than that . Beyond all of that technical stuff, simply studying this wonderful piece from an emotional standpoint is awe inspiring to me. The light in the lower part of your frame and then all the variations of shade and light, lightning and topography and sky, throughout this image is Just inspiring, Gary. What a magnificent composition this is! Thank you so much for this one, Gary! All the Best!... dj

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny. Thank God for my lightning trigger--I sure couldn't have this relying solely on my reflexes. :)

Wonderful light to go with the drama of the strike. Truly an inspiring image.
