f2.8 1/30 midafternoon, available light. This was taken during a spectacular thunderstorm yesterday. My son was pinned to the window watching the lightning, and his crazy mother was outside with an umbrella in one hand, and a camera in the other, praying not to get struck by lightning!


Gerda Grice level-classic July 05, 2004

It must have been really scary being out there in the storm. Your efforts certainly paid off, though! This is a delightful picture. The expression you've cvaptured is priceless and the picture is very nicely composed, too. Your son's eyes are wonderful. #144715
