Keh? You think we'd get stuck rather than diving in like Charley in the chocolate factory?

Hope it comes back up soon! :D

Durban still has blue skies but very hazy over the ocean. I am sure it will be here tonight.

How about that Thunder storm here last night. Amazing.

A little bit in the afternoon, but the great storm from about 7pm to about 3 am this morning. This is unheard of in Cape Town.

Enjoy you day and hope the cam is up and running soon.

Morning all! I'm back after a week away from work and in between work I will have to catch up on all the chit-chat on the forum.

Magnificent thunder storm last night in the Cape. Went up to the whale look out point outside Gordons Bay last night when I got back from church to get a better view. Any tips on taking photographs of lightning?? I tried my best for about an hour but could not manage a decend photo!!

Sunny in Kent today, spring is in the air, I might have to take my camera duckling hunting if I can work up the energy at lunchtime :D

Yep, GP, that's a great story... pity we can't dive into chocolate rivers as well!

Francois, photographing lighting is best done from a tripod. Set up in the direction you expect the lightning to come, then set the camera to either take for 2-3 seconds and use a remote to trip it, or just put it into bulb mode and use the remote to start and end the exposure at the beginning and end of the strike. Best done through an open window... not from the garden. Be careful though, I knew a chap when I was younger whose daughter was killed while watching a thunder storm through an open window :cry: .
