Picture of the Day: Long Exposure Lightning Strike
LONG EXPOSURE LIGHTNING STRIKE
In this fabulous capture by Dean Mullin, we see a long exposure shot of a lightning bolt off the coast of Kuala Belait in Brunei. The photo was taken on Belait Beach which overlooks the South China Sea. To get this shot, Dean took a 7 minute exposure (429 seconds to be exact) with a focal length of 26mm, aperture of f/7.1 and an ISO of 100.
The photograph was taken at 10pm and that orange light you see in the distance (lower left) is an offshore oil platform.
