Lighting hits the CN Tower

Wow, I’ve waited several summers to see lightning hit the CN Tower and tonight I finally did. It was amazing!!! And so beautiful.
And like the saying goes, when it rains, it pours, it kept doing it over and over. I must have seen it 10 times. So I decided to go and get the tripod and camera out. Can I tell you how hard it is to photograph lighting!
You end up with a million pictures like this:

If you’re not careful, you’ll get very overexposed pictures like this:

But it’s all worth it when you get one good one:

This picture is not representative of how amazing some of the lightning bolts were, but since it’s all I have, I’m going with it.
Hope everyone else enjoyed the storm as much as I did.
Ligeia 🙂
ps. Mindy’s umpiring in this. Hopefully the games were canceled and she is on her way home.

    It's amazing!! How did you do that?
    and I think you had to be a cameraman.

    P.S. I bought a single-lens reflex camera to take beautiful girls….
