When Lightening Strikes...

This is a photo sequence containing 70 lightening strikes which was taken at Ikaria Island during a severe thunderstorm that took place on the night of a total lunar eclipse; June 15, 2011.

“In order to make the sequence, I set the camera to a tripod taking 20 second shots continuously. After 83 minutes I ended up with approximately 90 lightning shots. I had to exclude around 20 because the photo condensed so much that didn’t look nice. Also, in many shots I have captured more than one lightning. I believe that the number of actual lightning captured that night is more than 100.” (Chris Kotsiopoulos – The photographer)

Technical Aspects of the Shot: Canon EOS 550D, 16/6/2011 1:17 – 2:40, Shutter Speed 20 sec x 70 shots, Aperture Value 7.1, ISO 400, Lens Canon EF50mm f/1.8 II, Focal Length 50.0 mm
