Provia 400, Nikon f-100. This was scanned directly from the slide. Cropped, sharpened and that's about it. Shutter was in Bulb mode and the exposure was about 30 second's. These are multiple strikes over that period of time, I shoot a lot of lightnig and it can be dangerous! The bolt on the right was the last bolt and it scared the bejeeber's out of me! It was so powerful and bright I had to release the shutter to keep it from blowing out the photo.
My wife help's me, she takes a lightning rod and I have her walk out into a field towards the storm, when she scream's I snap the photo! No Problemo!!! ;-)))
