Sometimes you just need a little luck and a lot of memory card.
When I got to this spot I looked for a frame that I would like to see in the foreground of a lightning strike… were I to catch one. This seemed to be the best I could find.
The lightning was striking everywhere, but oddly to the left and right of my field of vision. Once in a while a small glimmer of a fork would appear in the far off distance.
That all said, I just kept shooting one shot after another, after another and another. After maybe 400 or so shots, this happened. I knew it was a good shot as soon as I saw the strike.
Like I said… a little bit of luck and a lot of memory card!
