This is my first try, with some tips of Ben Fourie (benf) to take some lighting strikes. I took this from my balcony, I had a really spectacular view on the thunderstorm with the multiple lightings. At one time a piece of the sky turned blue/green and that was really weird. I don't know what happend because it was gone before I realised it well.

This is a thunderstorm above Sandton City, Johannesburg and where I am standing is Houghton. Lovely panorma from my balcony.

This lovely picture I made of three diferent pictures, I thought one lightning is not spectacular and the buildings where not quite visible. So this is the result of my pp work with adobe photoshop.

Hi Liesbeth,

Wonderful look of the fury of the Nature, I like these rays drawing the skies with their irregular lines. Beautiful visual! I adore the atmosphere here in this landscape.

WOW!! amazing shot here Liesbeth!! Amazing detail! I really like this alot! Superb shot!
Thanks for your comments yesterday! B-)

Hello Liesbeth
Excellent mood with the lightening and with the deep blacks here. The detail is superb in the bolts though and have seen a good few of these at night in Auckland. Brilliant decisive moment capture.
