Featured above is a long exposure image of an eye-catching storm I observed late last summer on the Mediterranean Sea, off Maganuco, Modica, Italy. Though cloud-to-ground lightning dominated in this small but intense cell, cloud-to-cloud lightning on occasion lit up the entire storm. This image, a composition of 17 individual photos, was taken on September 14, 2020.

Photo Details: SONY ILCE-7RM3 camera; 8-second exposure; ƒ/2.8; ISO 400; 14 mm focal length; Software: Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 (Macintosh)
