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.Here's the feature page on the NASA site with some explanation of the lightning:
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.
