Kuala Lumpur lightning

Postby SimonB » Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:49 am

Just a couple of average lightning shots from the 32nd floor balcony of my hosts condo in KL last night. I didn't bring my tripod (dammit) and Ian only had a baby tripod which wouldn't support the weight of my DSLR with any lens bigger than my 16-35 and I had to use the remote timer to stop the wobbles, so these are fairly average.

That said, they're different, so...

This one's a tighter crop, so no balcony scene :-)

Off to Singapore tomorrow afternoon, sans kids, so expect a few more than!

Cheers,

Simon....

Great colours! Love the yellow of the clouds. It gives the picture a lot of atmosphere. They always have great lightning storms over there.

Awesome! I've just got back from there, as well as Borneo. It was great - storms every night. Not necessarily any rain or thunder even. Just the sky lighting up :)

Doing it again tonight, but both sides off in the distance. At dinner, flash bang at same time, made the whole restaurant jump.
