You have the patience of a saint. This looks well worth the wait, though. It's an excellent image all around - especially the viewpoint and the colors!

That's why it was so hard to catch btw!
I live in Oklahoma, and see lightening almost everyday during April and March. What I don't have on film, I was too scared to point my camera at!

Still a really great shot!

3 years? whoa. kinda long time ;)
if you shoot at f/5 with 13/1s you could. hit a lighting with a series of photos is quite hard, lighting can strike even between frames, or not at all on all series (to the buffer's limit)
lighting is a lot easier to catch on long exposures and almost closed aperture ;)

but a cityscape with a lighting - I like it very much! :)

Thank You For Your Kind Appreciation....

Actually in India ( Especially in my city ) we get rare opportunities to catch Thunderstorm & lightning. It occurs once or twice in entire monsoon season. If we are not equipped on that particular day than we might have to wait for entire year. That has what happened, so it took 3 years....:)

Hey... Thnx man.... :)... Actually In India we have perfect seasons... So thunderstorms are before & after monsoons. Everytime I waited for a shot but I used to miss. This was a perfect shot which I expected.... This photograph is from my penthouse....

Probably because lightning is very hard to actually capture on camera. Timing is essential
