Fireworks and Lightning

photo 1
Captured these night shots within a month of each other. Luckily, the fireworks settings were exactly as the lightning shot except catching the lighting is a little more tricky. The lightning is an event here in Western Washington, we get it seldom and its usually the top story on the local news channel(s). Everyone ooohs and ahhhs just like they’re watching fireworks.
