    There was a thunderstorm approaching, and there was no rain or wind so I decided to go up and check it out for a bit. After I got home I remembered that I had left my ND8 filter on for the flight which is part of what contributed to the noise, the other being my forgetting to take the camera out of auto mode. Anyway, I've learned from my mistakes and am ready to try again with the next one.

    Nice. I was just thinking about shooting the next lightning storm, but using my P3S instead of my P3A, lol.

    Very good, enjoyed the music you played with the footage. How far were you from the lighting strikes.

    Thank you, the music is Deep Haze by Kevin MacLeod, and is one of the free ones that YouTube provides. I was around 6 miles away when I started filming, but they were almost overhead when I landed. It started pouring about 3 minutes after I got in the car to go home.

    Thank you for watching. The fact that there was no wind made it a very nice flight. I tried another time previously and was bouncing around too much.
