Interesting Photo of the Day: Long Exposure Captures a Lot of Lightning in Utah

Mount Timpanogos, or “Timp” as some would call it, is the second highest mountain in Utah’s Wasatch Range. It towers over the Orem, Pleasant Grove and Provo area and is quite the prominent figure against the landscape. At 7000 feet from the valley floor, the sight certainly draws the attention of both locals and tourists and has earned the title of most climbed mountain in Utah:

    What article? All I see is a brief description and the image. When you say “article” I expect information, the lens, aperture, exposure time, etc. It’s a great image but I’m still learning and knowing how an image was captured helps those of us who aren’t pros get better.

      Yes, as PatL says, “What article?” I also think it’s a great image but some info about lens, aperture, exposure time, etc. would have been nice.
