More heat lightning

Stepping through the resulting video frame by frame to pull these images did show me why I'd never managed to get pictures of lightning before: you have to be incredibly lucky. 

Moving at 30 frames per second through the video, the lightning was often only visible in one or two frames. To capture still images -- in the dark -- even with an amazingly fast camera doing multiple exposures, you still have to manage to have the fractions of seconds that the lightning is visible coincide with the fractions of seconds that your camera shutter is open.

And I thought it was hard to take pictures of birds.
