    I guess things are tamer in Pasadena. I can usually hear the thunder and see the flash in the mountains above Pasadena, but cloud cover usually prevents me from seeing the actual strikes. Guess I'll have to venture to the Hollywood Hills.

    Nice shots SONYNUT. Getting nice cloud to ground is rare even here in the midwest unless one goes out chasing such shots. I look for local storms and shoot from my property, but this year I only have 2 so far.
    You got some good ones

    Just curious.. Whats the average filesize on a 25mp RAW file? You must need terabytes of space JUST for your photography lol.
