"Harvest Sky"

An early morning summer storm over the crop lands of south eastern Australia.

Some of you might recognise this as the same location as my "Aurora Australis" "Midnight Rainbow" and "Country Life" images. I took a drive to this location chasing a different storm, but only managed one good strike from it. Just as I was thinking about packing up and heading home this little cell built up behind the other. So glad that I stayed.

Beautiful capture!! Simple, clean, and crisp, yet powerful... great job! I love photographing lightening, it's so fun! This would make an awesome desktop wallpaper. Definitely not surprised you have a DD on this one! :)

Killer shot.  Perfect exposure, which I have found very difficult with lightning.  Did you use a lightning trigger?

Hey thank you so much Colin :D I really appreciate that, especially from you.  No I did not use a lightning trigger.  Just tried to shoot the longest exposure I could (hence the F/22 and ISO 50) and hoped for the best.  You end up with heaps of blank shots but every so often you get lucky.  As for the exposure, this was taken at a quite magical time in the morning just before sunrise so there was enough ambient light to light up the landscape but the sky was still just dark enough to allow for a 5 second exposure.  Most of the other lightning I have managed to get have all been taken well after dark and are basically just lightning bolts with silhouette landscape.  To get the perfect exposure I think we need to be lucky enough to get a storm in that sort of Blue hour period or be in a area with lots of artificial lights around, (or use a lightning trigger for daytime shots)
Wishing you the best of luck with your next storm chase mate.
