CLOUDS, LIGHTNING

Doane Avenue, Agawam

Photograph and text by Madeline Catania of Agawam

When a thunderstorm was predicted for the night of July 26, I got all my gear ready and set up in front of the picture window on my breezeway. I took a step outside to look at the sky and heard the first clap of thunder and ran inside. I sat with my remote and waited until I saw the flash. This was my first attempt to capture lightning and I was excited to get it. The image was created with a tripod-mounted DSLR and a wide- angle lens set at a 29-second time exposure.
