Lightning Storm - Natural Flash Photography

Tuesday night was quite stormy. With such frequent lightning I set my camera real slow (30sec) and aperture around f8 and got these photos by just clicking and letting the lightning make the photo - Natural Flash Photography

Stormy sunset sky

This is a study in 8x10 in Open Acrylic of a Stormy Sky at sunset. I am not sure If I am finished with it yet, I might add a foreground horizon feature. I was trying to take a cloud/landscape and make it in sort of a style reminiscent of a Rothko color field painting.

Update: This is a newer image after minor glazing changes.
