As incredible as this summer has been, we have had very few impressive lightning storms. I decided to look back at images captured in August from years past that hadn’t made it to the light of day and happened upon this two second exposure at Preston Beach in mid-August 2015. We had a very active storm pass by and I managed to capture several bolts of lightning by finding a composition, setting the aperture to f/22 and shutter speed to 2 seconds and then mashing the shutter release.

I lucked out with twin lightning bolts in this shot under a dramatic sky with a hint of light breaking through the top and rain flying diagonally in the distance.
