42 Stacked Shots of Athens during a thunderstorm
#1
This composite picture was featured on NASA's astronomy picture of the day - thought some of you might enjoy it. It's basically 42 stacked shots during taken during a thunderstorm. Each exposure was 3.2 seconds using a 15mm lens.

Quote:This is a photo sequence of 42 stacked shots, caught in Olympic Stadium, Athens during a severe thunderstorm. It only took me aproximatelly 30 minutes to capture 51 lightnings.
Nine shots were destroyed because of the excess brightness. See also the waterdrops from the drain pipe. They seem 'still' as they instlantly illuminated from the lightnings.
Here's the feature page on the NASA site with some explanation of the lightning:
