Glory with airplane shadow: The shadow of the airplane on a layer of clouds. The colorful glory around the shadow is cased by the diffraction of light in small water drops, similar to a rainbow.

Lightning over Baden: The first outcome of the thunderstorm season in 2012. Some thunderstorms occured during daylight where it is too bright for the long exposure interval shooting technique. Other lightings came after it was already raining heavily and I could not set up the camera. Nikon D3, 30 s, F/8.0, 17 mm, ISO 200, Wednesday, August 15, 2012 22:23:35

Lightning: Just a small boring thunderstorm missing Brugg as usual and disappeared from my point of view through the window. This picture was captured using MIOPS Smart Trigger which fires the camera only when it detects a lightning bolt. Very useful for daytime lighting photography and saving time in post processing.

This picture was captured using MIOPS Smart Trigger which fires the camera only when it detects a lightning bolt. Very useful for daytime lighting photography and saving time in post processing. Now I just need a nice lancscape and luck to be on the right place at the right time. Nikon D850, 10 s, F/5.6, 32 mm, ISO 200, Monday, May 28, 2018 02:11:44

Lightning: On contrary to yesterday's thunderstorm this time there were at least some lightnings hitting the ground and not just all hidden behind the clouds. This picture was captured using MIOPS Smart Trigger. If possible I recommend to shoot at least for 1/4 second and choose ISO and stop to underexpose the background by ca 1 stop. Otherwise a lightning may be spread over multiple images or hardly visible because the background is too bright. Nikon D850, 1/4 s, F/5.6, 31 mm, ISO 100, Thursday, May 31, 2018 21:06:01
