We got dozens of great photos of Sunday's dazzling lighting storm, and one of the photographers told us how he captured a series of three shots of the storm over Seattle.
Patrick Schroedl of Mercer Island explains how he "got the shot" using a Canon 60D
After hearing the storm on the night of July 7th, I got my camera and equipment ready and waited for the rain and hail to pass. I originally planned on just taking a few shots from my dock on Mercer Island. I ended up shooting from my deck, my dock, the north end of Mercer Island, Madrona Park, Alki Beach, and Lake Union.
I took just over two hundred shots between 12:45 AM and 4:15 AM, with exposure times ranging between four and thirty seconds.
