Daytime Lightning

It is possible to record lightning during the day without video equipment. Provided there are several return strokes then firing the shutter manually will occasionally be quick enough to pick up some of the later strokes.

The view may not be scenic but this nearby strike was a good reminder of why it is best to stay inside during a storm.

This corner cropped from earlier attempt shows that even when you are quick enough there is no guarantee the strike will be well placed in the frame.
