This was taken just couple weeks ago (21/10/12) in Gold Coast, Australia. I was reading some weather updates on the Internet that evening and noticed that big storm was coming from the West. I had to move quickly as I had to drive to this location approx. 15 min. I was hoping to capture something special that evening and finally after 2 years of trying I managed to take photo of the lightning with a decent composition. Yayyy !!! Technical: This is one exposure f8, 5sec. 400 ISO (no image blending) and pretty much straight out of camera with minor adjustments in lightroom.
“After a grueling 61 mile slog over wet clay roads, we were greeted to a sunset thunderstorm over one of the most vertical places in the US. A 3000 foot vertical drop to this remote section of the Colorado serves as the foreground for this impending storm cell….”
Toroweap, Grand Canyon
HH: I would like to make a trip up there before the cold sets in this year.
