Greased Lightning

Well, how did I manage this picture? First find a Dry location to keep the camera, cos Lighting and rain generally go hand in hand.Then Locate the Cumulonimbus cloud that creates the Bolts. Then focus the camera in that direction , keep the shutter open to the maximum duration possible with the camera (in this case 30 sec) and click, if a bolt hits at this time viola, u got a picture, Else try try and try again. Its Ideal to have a location far away from city lights , moonless night. In this case the picture was taken in the middle of the India ocean. Ideally suited for a shot like this.
Ride Into the Lightning- This was Photographed in the Malacca straits. The bright light is the stern of another ship, on close inspection you can see that she is being hit by one of the lightning Bolts
