Lightning is possibly one of the hardest subjects in landscape photography to master. The rain, hail and threat of being struck are all obstacles a photographer must overcome.
If you are wanting to try to master this power surge the best advice I could give is to be prepared. Ensure you know the location and have adequate cover from the elements before the storm hits as this ensures you don’t get wet!
This image was photographed from one of the lookouts near Fremantle. I have been wanting to use this location for a while now – I just needed the right storm! As always you can download this photo for free:
Photographed using the Canon EOS 1D MK IV, 3 images Stitched.
Until Next Time – Happy Shooting!
