I contacted area resident Dave Taylor, whose photo of the lightning storm in downtown Grass Valley ran in The Union on Friday.
I asked him to send the photo but also detail the information. It’s a spectacular shot.
“I arrived downtown at about 9 p.m., and according to the camera data the shot was taken at 9:56 p.m.,” he told me. “The camera was a Nikon D-300 and a 24-70 mm. f/2.8 lens exposure was 15 seconds at f/16 ISO white balance was set to a custom flash setting to warm up the scene a bit.”
