@Frosty and Ghaznavid. If you guys enjoy shooting lightning strikes and want to hit it accurately every time check this out.
To get multiple strikes on one frame, just set up your tripod, wide aperture, cable release, bulb setting and capture. Just don't shine your torch at or near the camera.
Those photos are possibly not the best, but they are from the only video I have from this summer. Need to get to the berg more.
Thanks for the feedback ST. I wish the students here at the Uni I work at liked it as much. I played that Drakensberg timelapse video at the start of a thermodynamics lecture a few weeks ago. Not enough students were watching, so I played it again. Needless to say the lecture ran a bit late!
