Yeah, it'* the real stuff. I had to lighten it up a bit to get the car to come out (which made it a bit grainy), but the lightning is authentic. I had to leave the shutter open for 8 seconds and hope for a bolt to occur while it was open. It took a few tries and some luck before I captured this one. There was a little breeze blowing and having the shutter open that long captured the motion in the trees - that'* why they're a little blurry. Stupid city lights give the picture that yellow look.
The picture wasn't intended to be a shot of the car, it just happened to be in the picture of the lightning. The lightning was prolly about 7-10 miles away.
LittleBird'* sig pic is cool. Drawing lightning like that is FAR beyond my ability.
