Along with my week of rain in Aruba, we had a few severe thunderstorms as well. I've always wanted to capture a lightning bolt, but I didn't have a tripod with me. This is the result of a 20 second hand held exposure. Yes, I know it's terrible, but I got my bolt after 20 minutes of standing next to the hotel window. Oddly enough, the LX-3 seems to take the same amount of time to process an image as the capture time. I.e., after the 20 second exposure, the camera took 20 seconds to process it before I could take the next photo! Very frustrating as I missed many more shots while waiting for the camera!
