Best lightning photo that I ever took. I use the point and pray method of tripod, remote trigger at about 3.2 second exposure. This is Benson AZ looking east with the sun going down behind me and in front of me was a Darth Vader hail storm about 30 miles away that was coming right at me.
This is a 10 layer photo. All the strikes that look like they are not touching the ground are about 30 miles away and where I10 is getting slammed you can see the line of car lights left of center above ground level.
The brightest one was the last one and almost 'threw' my tripod with camera attached into the car next to me before the the rain came down about 3 seconds later.
I used an app called 'storm alert' that instead of radar images, it has triangles that get bigger the faster the storm moves and if you click on the apex, it'll tell you cloud top height, vertical liquid kg/m² - everything. Too bad not available on Samsung, just LG Aristo.
