    Cracker Night

    I got myself a lightning sensor today and was lucky enough to get a nice storm cell come through my suburb to try it out. It was a good buy I think. C&C welcome.

    Thanks Andrew, I think No 3.) gets my vote, a double is always good.

    Super series! I especially like the pair of lightning bolts that John also mentioned. Though I haven't viewed thousands or even hundreds of lightning photos, I don't ever remember seeing such a scene.

    Hi Wayne,

    Those would make good screen wallpapers for computers if you sold them cropped to the typical sizes needed.

    They are something special, you had excellent conditions for the first shoot with the sensor.

    Hi Homer, it is a AEO. Just a cheaper version. There is a better AEO model which has an adjustable sensor but they all do the job OK.
