Today's Early Morning thundery front...(pics)

Well, with the weather warning earlier on I was waiting for the first thunder and jumped out of bed at 4.30 to get some good photos, but it was quite disappointing as the storm front went as quick as it came. It lasted only 1/2 hour and most of the lightnings were covered from a thick cloud formation.

This was the best one in my opinion...and hit near Asprokremmos Dam

That one is towards the sea and Mandria

further away at sea

closer at sea near airport

wind park hit

one lightning was igniting a small fire near the wind mills

and finally it's all over....

The most difficult photo was the last one, concerning the settings of the camera. I tried with 30 seconds: too blurred, and 5 seconds too dark. In the end this result was with 12 seconds exposure time. All photos from the beginning when the front was above the house were much too bright, even with 30 seconds and closed aperture...
