We look forward to hearing from you!
Shooting lightning is easy. Finding a situation where an active lightning storm completes the composition is really hard. In order to get this image, I trailed and passed through the storm front, continually finding potential cactus subjects…only to reject them as the storm continued to push onward. Finally, I got far enough ahead to let the storm transition into my frame. Focusing became the hardest problem to overcome. Finally hung my headlamp on the tree and focused on the beam. Lots of very hard, wet work with no sleep! –Jack Dykinga
