During a lightning storm especially at night, one can capture several bolts of lightning in a single image with a long exposure time, e.g. a few minutes. In making this image, though, I wanted to maintain the structure of the moving clouds instead of representing them as a smear, as they would appear with an exposure time of several minutes. This image is a composite of three images taken back-to-back-to-back, giving multiple lightning bolts while maintaining the defined cloud structure. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
