My First Lightening Shot

St. Petersburg, Russia. August 2010.


  1. How many pictures did you have to take to get this incredible shot?

  2. St. Petersburg has gnarly thunderstorms that come through in the evenings during the summer. We were staying on the 12th floor of an apartment building. I set up my camera on a tripod on the deck and opened the shutter for 15 seconds at a time. I took at least twenty shots and this was the only keeper.
