Lightning Strikes In The Republic of Kosovo, The Balkans


Last night there was a big storm that passed through that didn’t produce much rain at all, but the lightning strikes show was incredible.

Nature gave us a show for almost an hour and some beautiful shots were able to be captured with my Canon Powershot D10 on a miniature tripod using the fireworks option.  Since I was manually pressing the shutter button and getting a 2 second exposure, the timing was difficult capturing the lightning strikes, but I achieved what I wanted to do especially with the above photo.

It took over 200, yes 200+, digital photos to achieve the results you see.  Thank goodness for digital technology.  Hope you like the pictures as much as I do.  Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions.






About VacationWanderer

I have 'wandered' pretty much around the world but still have a lot to see and experience. My favorite things to do in life are travel, photography, and learning new languages or foreign language phrases to use along the way. "Hello", "Thank You", and "Please" in any language will open many doors for you. :-) I love to share my travel experiences with people and hope to inspire those who are still just thinking about it.
