It was nearly midnight when after a period of hot days the first rain comes down. I used this chance to catch some pics of the storm. But it was really hard. On the one side the short duration of the lightening (only a few milliseconds) on the other side the darkness of the night. First I used a long exposure time (>15sec). The Result? Oh **** – lightening is really bright, the pics where overexposed.

Finally the key was to use a shutter-time about 3sec, take one photograph after an other and trust in luck.
