The picture was taken on a 30 sec exposure, which means that the camera will record everything it sees for 30 sec. I don't have to hit the button real quick or anything like that. Just set the camera in the direction of the storm, set up the camera and the settings you want and fire away.
There is luck involved, this was a busy night and I missed more lightning stikes than I got. I can't tell you how many times my friend and I said "Dang, I just missed that one" Either out of field of view or not taking a pic at that time.
Long exposures are fun!
Thanks for the compliments, I haven't felt my picture were very good so I had not taken very many of them for about 5 years. Just starting to get back into it.
