General Electric by gilad General Electric by gilad

Watch me breaking the the sky in half
Hear me beating that drum in your heart
I'm bigger and faster than all you know
Entering the city that never sleeps
Now you see, and now you don't
And that's why you will never catch me.
Or will you?


*****

The last couple of days in Israel, were really stormy.
Non stop rain. Two night ago I was still at work when I noticed that there were lightnings every 30 seconds or so..
This seemed like a rare op' for me to get a capture of a lightning, and so I took this from the window at work.
What you see is Even-Gvirol street in Tel Aviv from north to south.

I used 4 seconds exposures.
I did 20 tries untill I caught this one.
It's the only one I was able to capture.

oh, it's a bit wiggled!!! Perhaps you did not use a tripod, are you? In technical view it's a bad photograph (I'm sorry to say that), but you were there on the right time!!

Have also a look on my Lightning Storm 2!

Not that you had one at the time,but using the video camera tool on automatic cameras make it easier. That's how I catch most of mine. But then again you were at a disadvantage. Shame, still it's a beautiful shot

how did you do it with such long exposure? did you wait for the lightning to flash and then shoot or did you shoot randomly and hope it would flash while your taking the shot?

There is no way to beat lighting after seeing it.
I took long exposures hoping to catch a lighting in them.
It was a lighting storm, so luck was on my side
