First attempt at making a lightning video

The National Weather Service was forecasting some pretty heavy severe storms the other night, and Tracy and I decided to head out to film the storms, hoping to make a lightning compilation video. This is something we have been wanting to do ever since we ordered our “GoPro” style camera from Amazon (Campark ACT74 Action Cam).

It was a long night of trying to figure out where and how to get the shots we wanted. We had set up at a church that sits on a hill and got slammed hard when the rain band and wind finally hit us. The church apparently got hit by lightning, and it set off the fire alarms, so we ended up calling the fire department. An interesting night for sure. Here is our video, and some bonus still photos. Hopefully they get much better in the future.
