Lightning Photography

Another tropical typhoon has hit the Philippines and as a matter of fact, we are still in the throes of it’s wrath. Instead of being cozy inside with a nice cup of coffee the EOS 7D is mounted on a ball head tripod and brought outside to experience Chedeng. With strong winds the tripod had to be on extra weights to keep it still-strapped on a back pack full of books.

Below are photos taken on 3 separate nights starting on May 22, 2011. The lightning made it too good not to shoot.

The sky after a typhoon here.
