ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Monday night’s storms produced a spectacular lightning show along with heavy rain, high winds and one tornado near House Springs. A blogger named Blake sent this picture to FOX 2 meteorologist Chris Higgins. He says this image is made of three 30 second exposures. The pictures are layered over each other in Photoshop. A filter is applied so all the lightning bolts show through.
It’s basically a capture of 90 seconds worth of lightning strikes. The star bursts on the lights happen naturally with the lens he uses.
