54/365 Distant lightning

Spring storm season has arrived, so I greeted it on my front porch with my tripod and remote trigger in hand, hoping to catch some good lightning shots.

But, alas, it wasn't meant to be. It started raining before the bolts of lightning moved within sight, so I had to move to cover.

I love good lightning photos, but not enough to subject my camera to the elements. I guess that means I'm not cut out to be a true storm chaser. Or at least I won't be until I have money to burn on multiple cameras.

Better luck next time.

Camera: Canon 40D, 72 seconds, f/8 at ISO 200 at about 11:00 p.m.
