Picture of the Day – Lightning Crashes
Photograph by Chris Kotsiopoulos
Chris Kotsiopoulos says: This is a photo sequence of 42 stacked shots, caught in Olympic Stadium, Athens during a severe thunderstorm. It only took me approximately 30 minutes to capture 51 lightnings. Nine shots were destroyed because of the excess brightness. See also the waterdrops from the drain pipe. They seem ‘still’ as they instantly illuminated from the lightnings.
Shot using: Canon EOS 550D, 28/6/2010 1:16 – 1:48, Shutter Speed 3.2 sec x 42 shots, Aperture Value 4.0, ISO 100, Lens Canon EF 15mm f/2.8, Focal Length 15.0 mm
