Hi Kris
Very fascinating !
Didd you used a special sensor for catching the electric flash ?
Because with a speed of 1/500 it's impossible to make it.
Well done.

Default To Didi: no sensor

hi Didi

no, I had no sensor (not even a tripod): just pure luck. I was fooling around with different angles of the scene for I liked the mood. meanwhile, the lightning was striking every 5-10 seconds or so.

actually, I was after another lightning jolt, but, as you said: @ 1/500 it's impossible; luckily another lightning (the one you see) struck just as I was pressing the shutter.

Thank's for your answer.
The special sensor exists really but it's very expensive to buy.
You were very lucky indeed
Best regards
