Twilight Lightning

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The last light of sunset can be seen on the distant horizon as stars emerge in the blue hour light of the sky and lightning flashes in and around the storm clouds. At times I was backeting 15 or 30 second exposures, so I would trigger a shot and then have to wait 90 seconds for it to finish. When lightning is approaching fast, 90 seconds seems like an eternity!
