Twin Lightning at Preston Beach

  • Twin lightning bolts are captured in a 2 second exposure at Preston Beach on an August evening

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.

    Nice shot. When we lived in Texas the light show were awesome. Used to sit on the porch and watch them. Never thought to take photos.
