I spent many hours last year trying to photograph lightning with no success. Tonight while shooting some awesome storm clouds rolling over, one of my shots had a little bit of lightning in the upper right corner of the picture. I didn’t even know it until I got home and looked the shots over. I’ve always been fascinated with photographs of lightning and have seen some awesome shots featured at the photography sites I hang out at. It’s something I would definitely want to have a lot of in my portfolio.
Also got some shots of a rainbow. The picture doesn’t do it justice. This is one of the brightest rainbows I have ever seen.
If you want to see a few more weather shots from tonight look here.

I haven’t had any luck with lightning shots either.
Check out this cool shot from tonight someone took in Chicago. http://pyogenes.smugmug.com/photos/18604247-M.jpg
Oh I love lighting shots. I rember when I first starting to try them. I would easily take 200+ shots and maybe if I was lucky get 1 with lighting. Its a lot of fun, I can do like 10 shots a second with my camera, and with a tripod, losts of CF cards and some time can usally get a shot or 2 each storm.
