Capture something unexpected

Once in a while you capture something that you weren’t expecting and better yet, you didn’t realize until you loaded the shot. I was shooting an incoming storm that had some long cloud to ground lighting when I captured this. The incoming storm had some good cloud rotation but I was shocked at how much it was rotating when I looked at the image in post. For you shutter bugs, this image was shot with my 35mm prime, f5.6 at iso 100, 63 sec shutter with ND filter. When it comes to storm and lightning photography, you can get some interesting results when you extend your shutter time. In Central Florida, we get few tornadoes but we do get massive cloud circulation from the daytime heating and sea breeze collisions. Those also conditions also contribute to our lighting output which is one of the most active regions in the world.
