Something about this image might seem familiar to some of you. I shared a similar shot back in the end of May last year. It was my first ever capture of lightning and it was taken from my family home in the Philippines. I have used the same shot here but I've blended it in with the only other successful shot from that session. They still remain the most satisfying shots that I've ever taken! ⚑️⚑️😁⚑️⚑️ #nikon #doubleexposure #night #drama #nature

charmychelle: Good mornight Fredy, thank you for your beautiful comment! ☺️ I’m lucky to have lived in two countries with such a drastic difference in climate and that I’ve been able to capture it all on camera! πŸ“Έ But it’s not often you see an electrical storm so these shots are extremely special to me. πŸ’™ Meanwhile we had a very short period of snow here but it’s all melted away now! Have a great week! πŸ˜„πŸ‘

charmychelle: Thank you dear Pini, yes, you have to be super lucky to capture lightning and fortunately I was lucky that evening! πŸ€ These were two separate shots that I blended in together, to make it look more spectacular! πŸ˜„πŸ‘ Take care my friend!

cameraal: It is hard to get views like these..well done!!

Posted: 2018 Feb 7 6:53:11 AM

charmychelle: It would be even harder here in the UK, electrical storms are quite rare, but with global warming as it is now, who knows..? πŸ˜… I did feel extremely lucky to get a shot that day, let alone two, though one shot was stronger than the other. I was just looking at some past photos when I thought of blending in the two! Thanks a lot my friend! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

hogman72664 or david: I can see why you feel that way. I've never managed a lightning shot. Love the colour on this as well. :-) XX

charmychelle: Thank you David. The first shot was in blue so I thought that I would change the hue for this edit. 😊 I hope you’ll be lucky enough to experience an electrical storm and have your camera with you, it’s such an amazing natural phenomenon! Thank you so much, good night my friend! xxx πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

kyle1337: Absolutely fantastic!! Excellent job dear friend! I love it!❀

charmychelle: Thanks Kyle, it’s moments like these that you truly treasure as you rely solely on luck to get these shots! I tried to spend a few seconds studying the pattern before I pointed my camera in the direction where I saw most of the lightning. I started off with a half charged battery and just kept on shooting until it turned itself off flat, luckily I had two decent shots out of about 20-30 and I was delighted! πŸ˜„βš‘οΈβš‘οΈπŸ‘

stefpics2: Wonderful capture ! :)

Posted: 2018 Feb 7 5:55:18 PM

charmychelle: Thanks Stef, the second image that I had of the lightning wasn’t as strong as the one I shared previously, so I thought of blending them together to produce a better result! πŸ˜„βš‘οΈβš‘οΈπŸ‘

charmychelle: Thank you! This was actually a double exposure using the only two successful shots of the 20-25 that I had taken! ☺️ I didn’t hear any thunder, it was just an electrical storm! ⚑️⚑️
