Lightning Pics!

Fishing outings in the past couple of weeks....zero

Work has been hectic and weekends have mostly been spent house hunting which means fishing has been close to non-existent. Assuming things go according to plan this weekend, I'll be escaping for a few hours to get Justin from The Barbless Angler on his first carp caught on the fly.

The most exciting news that I really have is that I finally picked up a new Nikon D3200 DLSR camera! I've been jonesing to get one for quite some time and that was reinforced during the driftless trip when I saw Woz's photos.

Between fishing and capturing pictures of my little guy, it was an easy bullet to bite!

I have been doing some reading on how to actually use these things and have been eagerly awaiting a thunderstorm so I can take a crack at getting a picture of some lightning. The opportunity presented itself last night and I think it's safe to call it a success!!!



The focus is a bit off and I still need to figure out some better aperture settings but I think they turned out awesome for my first attempt!!

    1. Yeah that one was my favorite. I wish it was a bit more in focus though. Focusing on a sky is difficult when there is nothing there to use as a reference so my focus was mainly set on the roof

  3. Living in Colorado means I have seen all the lightening I can stand. However, your pictures were well done, Nick. Pretty amazing!

    1. Once I get the waterproof case thing for it then I'll definitely bring it int eh field all the time. Until then, I am bit apprehensive.

  5. Please Nick, no more lightening pictures. Just looking at them made me afraid it would start another forest fire here.
