Quiet Lightning

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by becki short

I took this in my backyard in September during a lightning storm. I shot this manual with an exposure time of one second, f-stop was f/8. ISO at 200. I chose to submit this photo because it is the only one I have of just one lightning strike. I have numerous photos of lightning where it feels chaotic and almost angry, but this one is different. It feels simple and astounding.
