Photographer's Note

I call this my "experiment in the bush..." :-)

Looking across the Moreshwe Pan in the Khutse Game Reserve we could see a couple of huge thunderstorms developing in the distance. So I decided to try my hand at long exposures, and this is the result...

This was taken at 20:00 at night, so it was quite dark already. I put the Nikon on a tripod, set the exposure to 30 seconds, and hoped for the best.

What you are looking at is rain, being lit from the inside by lightning. The top part of the sky is still slightly lit due to the setting sun in the opposite direction. Hope you enjoy it.

(I would have like to a little more detail in the foreground, but like I said it was really dark already)
