Default Holy storms

They're leaving the mankato area it looks like. Figured it was time to run out and try some lighting shots. I compressed it a lot in PS, but you get the idea...

It was my digital camera. It'* kinda a wannabe SLR, it has a 10x zoom lens, but it'* not detatchable.

For the digital i put it to continous shot mode. I can either hold the shutter up to 5 shots, or hold it down till i let go, at which point it saves up to the last 5 taken. I would put it shutter priority or night mode, and balanced it on the rail on my balcony and put a finger or two under it to point up. No tripod here at the apt, had to improvise. I would do it different with my flim SLR, but that'* another thread.
