Island Lightning Show 

On Monday 2 April, local phtographer Andrew Murrel missed the sunset but was situated nicely on the Island at “Pump Park” when the storm approached. Over to Andrew…

“I drove to St Hubert's Island to get a clear shot of the storm’s approach and I could also see the rain front as it approached. I arrived with still a little colour in the sky and the lightning flashing about every 5 seconds. I stayed shooting till the rain started. All images shot with the Nikon D500 and the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens. I put the camera in Aperture mode and had the aperture set to between f6.3 and f8.”

“… That way if we got a fairly close shot it wouldn't swamp the sensor. I set the ISO to 200 and the camera selected the appropriate shutter speed. You need a tripod and … a remote if you have one. These was taken about 20 minutes after sunset so the exposures were already several seconds.”
