    don't blink or you'll miss it

    I love catching lightning..just a wee bitty storm but i got some shots off..

    with the a900 25 mp i can chop off most of the pic to get a nice crop with lots of resolution left...(these are still sqeezed down to fit here though)

    Those are some cool shots. I don't get many opportunities here in So Cal. to photograph lightning, but it's high on the list of things to do.
