The thunderstorm was right in front of my window. So, after a view minutes of watching the lightnings come down, I decided to open the window, take my Lubitel, a gorillapod and a cable release. I let the shutter open for a very long time until finally lightning struck! This was an experiment, so I was very happy that it turned out that good!

graefin This photo was shot on film. Taken by graefin with a Lubitel 166B (available in our Online Shop) loaded with Fuji Velvia film in Steinhude, Germany. These tags describe this photo: lightning, ultra long exposure, pink, night, lubitel, mittelformat, and velvia. This photo can also be found in the album Lubitel: LIGHTNING!.

    Great picture! I'd never thought of that idea of how to catch it, holding the shutter open. Really great idea, and I intend to steal it next time there's a lightening storm!

    @sonjabean: I was lucky enough to have the thunderstorm right in front of my window. The lightnings came down just behind that tree.

    Amazing! You should enter this in jpgmag.com for their "severe weather" theme. You would totally get my vote! I really like your work! Cheers!
