    you can explain what it means 46×5 sec?
    I know that to make these photos must be bulb exposure.
    you used only 5 sec?
    soon as I can, I also try to do this kind of picture.
    really fantastic photos. I feel envy
    Thanks and good luck

    A great photo Kamila. Looks like a good storm.
    I also only use 5 secs when taking shots of lightning but thats more to do with the light pollution here in Bangkok. Marco. If you are in an area without light pollution you can just leave the exposure setting open (B setting) and close it once you get a strike. Just make sure camera is on a tripod :)

    I think tis will be the photo of the month!
    Myślę, że ta fotka zostanie zdjęciem miesiąca i może wydrukują ją w kolejnym kalendarzu?

    Trust me – amazing 4 minutes… terrifying power… scream the sky…
    Thank you for your warm welcome and many comments. I swallowed up in the sky… Nocturnal escapades, storms, eclipses, conjunctions… The photograph will next be seen also in my presentation, which is preparing…
    Marco C. – this picture is composed of 46 frames, each of them was after 5 seconds. Folded in Startrails.
    Kind regards,
