Lightning Storm

We had the first big lightning storm of spring last night. I’ve never had much luck taking lightning photos before, but this time I actually got a few good ones. I found that manually focusing to infinity, and using a shutter speed of 5-10 seconds with the ISO as low as possible seemed to work the best. A tripod was definitely a must.
