    rare thunderstorm yesterday,

    and I wasn't prepared because I haven't read my manual (studying it & practiced). Plus the fact, even in auto mode I could have captured these if I would have got my tripod in time (my hands have tremors

    I have about 4 photos I will show you that didn't turn out. The reasons are the "above" first of all. I just shot in Auto mode. Yes I was rushed, knew time was limited, but the other thing was, I had to unpack my camera. I'm inclined to leave it set up but could be 5 years before we have another storm and lighting like I had.

    I will also tell you I was not sure what I was seeing, I first assumed it was a "darker" storm cloud, then I decided it was actually a reflection "off" the main storm cloud, of the hills in the forefront of the pics.

    I would have given a lot to have my "stuff" memorized for the manual settings. Live and learn, usually the hard way Denise
