A lightning shot from this past September, and a detail from that shot. I focused the camera to infinity and had mounted in the shoe a lightning detector built by a friend of mine. It has a 2 micro-second response time. You tune it for the ambient lighting conditions and once it detects a change in light intensity, it triggers the shutter.

Ok, I see that you can embed a photo using the regular editor, or if you use the full editor, you can attach a thumbnail. If you click on the thumbnail, it displays the image full-size. The embedded image stays the size that it displays as in the message. Good to know.

Some nice shots there guys,i always take my point and shoot with me when i go walking in the British countryside,even if its just for a keep sake.though i would like to splash out on a decent DSLR and have a go at learning the finer details of photography.

 

Here is a few shots of mine while out and about roaming the hills

 

 

 

This 1 is up in the Lake District with Englands highest peak on the right covered in cloud

This one is of a stone monument built to comemorate the the defeat of Napoleon, managed to capture the sun in just the right place to give a halo effect.
