How to Take a Picture of Lightning at Night
Taking a picture of lightning at night is not complicated.  Mount the camera on a tripod and
point it in the direction of the lightning strikes.  Your camera needs to have the ability to
hold the shutter open.  I my case it will stay open as long as 15 seconds when set up
properly (read your camera instructions).  Count the number of seconds between lightning
strikes.  (Not the time from strike to thunder).  The time between lightning strikes will be
fairly consistent, this will let you know when to open the shutter if your camera has a time
limit like mine.  Beyond this, it is luck and patience to get a picture you like.
