Lightning over DC

4 Apr

I was sitting at my desk last night doing some work when I was interrupted by a few repeated flashes of light. I looked out my window and there was quite an electrical storm happening in the distance. I decided to point a camera out the window to see what I would get. After about an hour of photography, this crazy photo showed up on the back of my camera.


(Canon EOS 40D, 85 mm, 5s, f/5.6, ISO 200)

Update: I have received many requests about prints. They are available here.

Some outtakes after the jump.

If you look closely, you’ll see that the same tower is hit in many of these photos.

    [...] Our area got pounded by early morning storms after a glorious spring day on Monday. Reagan National experienced a 33 degree swing in temperature in less than 24 hours, reports the Capital Weather Gang over at the The Washington Post. It should calm down out there tomorrow leading to a nice weekend, but in the meantime check out some awesome images from Sunday’s storm shot by Maxwell Kruger. [...]
