    :D Well it looks like there is going to plenty of thunder and lightning over the next 24 hours across the country. Though if not, I'm sure you will get some at some point.

    Do you have your camera ready? Batteries charged and memory cards wiped?

    Here's some tips for taking the shots: Taking Pictures of Lightning - Weather Imagery

    Some point and shoot cameras will have the option to manually adjust the settings so have a look at your manual! Those that don't still might be capable of a decent shot, but it would involve more luck.

    Do you live by the coast? Get out there! You could come up with something like this:

    [​IMG]

    That was taken a couple of years ago now, at Old Hunstanton, Norfolk. I was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time. The blue you can see in the clouds is the electricity pulsing through them right before the lightning started to strike. It was an amazing experience, the best storm I have ever witnessed.

    Have fun, and post your 'stormy' shots here! Even if there is no lightning in the shot, you can't beat a picture with good menacing dark clouds ... as you can see above!

    Have at it!
