I was fortunate to have witnesses such a lightning storm up around Old Halls Creek back in mid September of 2002.
As frightening as it was, I will never forget being mesmerised by it's wondrous beauty/effects.
Just goes to show how small a spec of dust man is, compared to the spanse of the universe. Beautiful Photography. Thanks Jen

Hi Kon
Must have been a great trip to halls creek back then?
Yep.. sure is frightening watching those lightning strikes, and hearing that LOUD thunder roaring around.
As much as its fascinating to watch, its is damn spooky at the same time
Mother nature sure puts on a great show though Twisted Evil

I will get back to you on this question..
I do know that after he took heaps of pictures, he then used a computer program to stack the pictures.

Thats done with a Mavic Pro Quadcopter. Which has a 12mp camera under it.
The photo was done by using a feature called AEB (auto exposure bracketing) which in this case took 5 shots at the same time each at a differant exposure.
Then in some software called Light room, the 5 photos are all put together to creat a HDR (High dynamic range) photo.
Then a little tweak in Light room and that is the result!
