Lightning over Gold Coast
by Pawel Papis
This was taken just couple weeks ago (21/10/12) in Gold Coast, Australia.
I was reading some weather updates on the Internet that evening and noticed that big storm was coming from the West. I had to move quickly as I had to drive to this location approx. 15min. I was hoping to capture something special that evening and finally after 2 years of trying I managed to take photo of the lightning with a decent composition. Yayyy !!! :)
Technical: This is one exposure f8, 5sec. 400 ISO (no image blending) and pretty much straight out of camera with minor adjustments in lightroom.
Equipment: Canon 5d Mk3, Canon 50mm f1.4
