Thanks mate. Yea just a long exposure and timing ;) You have to judge when the next strike is going to happen. Listen for ther thunder then press the shutter, the lightning wont be too far behind ;)

U dont need a fast camera for this type of shot. Sll you need is a slow shutter speed and a low ISO i just used 200 for this one and as u can see in the details 30 sec exposure.

Hey thanks guys...this one is just a cropped image. I
thought id go for the panoramic crop simply to focus more on the lightning and get rid of any distractions in the
foreground.
