Februari 2019 : Timing

This month the theme was : "Timing", and we have an ex-aequo : Rui and Simon both got the same number of votes for their magnificent pictures.

Simon told us his photo is made with a crop camera and a 200mm lens, somewhere in Wales.


Rui told us this story about his photo : 

14 july 2015 @ deserted camp site in the Antelope Island State Park, Utah USA.

Barbecue was on, celebrating a birthday party as a storm started over the Great Salt Lake.

Set up a tripod with a friend and discussed the setup to capture lightning. It was so absorbing that we did not notice the storm closing in on us.

The two lightning bolts stuck no more than 100m away. That was it, photo session over. This was the last shot.

We ran into the RVs and held on for the night. Only saw the shot on the next day.

Specifications of the picture : Canon 70D + EF-S 10-22mm @ 10mm,  30s @ f/8 ISO100
