Lightening

Shortly after full dark a thunder storm began lighting up our eastern sky.  Attaching a 24-105mm lens setting the focus manually to near infinity, dialing in a F5.6, ISO 2000 and setting the mode to bulb I was ready to go.  I made the following images handheld with the shutter depressed allowing the strobe effect of the lightening to make the exposure.  After each bolt of lightening I released the shutter momentarily before depressing it and waiting for the next flash.

Again, you have done a nice job here. I'm not even sure that my Pentax will even has a ISO that high. Must take a look. You seem to know much more about photography than I do.
