Photographer's Note

Photographing a thunder depends on luck, patience and long shutter speed if not on anything else. The storm cloud started gathering from the afternoon but the lightning started after the dask. I waited for the sky to darken sufficiently then attempted the shoot. The thunders were occuring at a particular area in the sky ... I tried to get a dark back ground but the lights at the distant could not be avoided.

I set up the camera on a tripod, in wide zoom and composed the likely area in the sky where the thunder may appear. Set up the camera in shutter priority with 8 sec shutter speed with auto 1/3 exposure bracketing. Then put the camera in self timer so that my pressing of the shutter release does not effect the shot. Then I took about 30 shots. Got lucky in few of the shots and displaying the one I like most. Contrast/ brightness adjusted in Picassa, noise reduced in Neat Image 5 and resized in MS Powertoys. Let me know wht u think.
