Lightning During the Day

by Kristi Hines · Arizona


Capturing lightning during the day is a bit of a trickier feat as you can’t leave the shutter open as long without having a completely over-exposed image. So in essence, with the faster shutter speed, you just have to get luckier. And this particular afternoon, I did just that!

Also, I just wanted to again thank everyone who is coming by, commenting, and tweeting. I have been super busy juggling the full-time day job and a LOT of freelance writing on the side. Camera equipment is expensive, after all. 😉

For those into social media, SEO, and business, you can see what I’ve been up to in my writing around the web post on my main blog. I’ll be doing double duty heavily for the next few months or so, but will try to get back to my commenting rounds. I miss you guys and your photos!

Nice one. It does take some luck and a lot of repetition.

You are so correct, daytime lightning can be a real challenge. Personally I think it looks great, just really hard to get. Great job on this one.
