(Denver, Co., May 10, 2004) A large storm descended upon areas Northeast of Denver the evening of May 10th. I shot this image with a Nikon D2H digital 35mm body, a 70mm lens (with a 70-200 mm Nikkor zoom), the aperature was set at F 5, and the shutter speed was 13 seconds to catch the lightening, and I set the ISO of the disk to 800 - which mimics 800 speed film. I had to use a tripod because of the long shutter speed and to bracket using the shutter speed. The first frame I set it at 13 seconds, the second frame I shot at 15 seconds, the third frame I shot at 20 seconds and so on. I was able to check and see where I needed to be exposure-wise by looking at the images that I had shot on the back of the camera. That is what is so great about digital photography. It was scary to be in the middle of a field with the lightening, the wind and the hint of tornados in the air. (photo by JUDY WALGREN/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS.)
