Rather like Don Smith's recent Spotlight image for quality and consistency. Do you also use some form of device to trigger the shutter during electric storms Scott?

@Curly: Yes, for daytime lightning I use the lightning trigger which works very well for medium to stronger strikes. I set it at 1/4 second, Shutter priority for the image. During daytime you will often need to use lower the iso, use a polarizer and/or an ND filter to get a 1/4 exposure. You have to test out settings carefully to ensure that you are not overexposing the brighter sections of the image. i also shoot in RAW which gives a bit more control for exposure in the final processing.

Wonderful shot ... and the same question - a lightning trigger?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Absolutely, yes for daytime images. See response for Curly above. During night or late evening I prefer to shoot in 30 second exposures, without the trigger.
Fantastic image! The mountains are just beautiful!
