X is for X-tremely hard picture to catch

This picture was taken on the 4th of july, 2008 during a thunder storm in Tucumcari, New Mexico.  Because of the delay it took 25 shots with my digital camera before I finally got this shot.  I understand there is now a lightning sensor for your camera.  My wife has a picture of lightning and fireworks in the shot on the same 4th of July. Post # 24 on ABC Wednesday.


  1. Very, very impressive Terry. I haven't been able to ever capture a shot of lightning. It is definitely X-treamly difficult.

  2. I've never gotten really good pics of lightning or fireworks, for that matter. Tip o' my hat.

  3. It's electrifying! I'm so glad that you kept clicking away:) Awesome!

  4. absolutely true, cathing a pix of lightning is an Xtreme one

    ohh why didnt i think of that, great pix too...X is really a hard letter/theme

    my entry is here

    Great day Wednesday folks :)

    Thanx for the Visit :)

  5. Nice photo!
    I always think it would be fun to do weather photographs. On my list!
    I feel inspired. X-treamly hard to capture, I would think.

  6. I can imagine how hard that shot would be to get!

    Gosh. It's a good one!

  7. Such a fantastic picture. I love it. I am glad you caught it even though it was extremely difficult!

  8. Terrific shot - just terrific! I've never been able to get even close to a decent shot of lightning.
