Awesome photographs. Can I ask what sort of settings you would use to capture these images?

Thanks Wilkography.

The settings I used were f/4 ISO-100 Exposure time 8 seconds.

I am a novice at photography so someone else might be able to suggest better settings. This was my first attempt at photographing lightning . Although I was happy with my results I have seen some awesome lightning photos that make mine look very crappy indeed (not hard, I know :roll: ).
