I have been following your blog for a while enjoying your wonderful images. But these are really cool. I was wondering if you'd mind if I link to them from my blog?
An amazing shot! Beautiful! I have never tried capturing lightning storms but after reading your explanation I will maybe try it one day. Thanks for sharing!
I am sooo jealous, we never get storms like this over here in England! The shots are wonderful, though I have to ask how you set your camera up to do the interval captures, was it connected to a computer or do you have a gadget to do that?
Spectacular shots, but mostly well composed, something unusual in photos of lightning.
WOW! Absolutely fantastic! I just can't stop scrolling the flash image back and forth.
Awesome! please let us know how you put all the images together on ps.
Fabulous . . . Where are those shots taken from? The CN Tower is still standing, imagine the voltage that went through that needle . . .
Great photos Sam. That storm was intense! I wish I had a vantage point like yours. I live on the first floor in a house which is surrounded by maple trees. There's nowhere to take a photo from...
really great shots. all of them. thank you.
Wow! once again, you come up with not only awesome photos but smart ways to show them. I love the flash version.
It looks very beautiful...an awesome image...and lightning is just aweful.
Fantastic Sam, I had a feeling you were going to catch some great ones and you did. Love the mouseover image switching.
That is really fantastic. I would like to capture some lightning shots like that some day. Guess I need to work on being in the right place at the right time.
Amazing photos and amazing storm, here in Alicante (Spain) doesn't have this kind of storms, just a lot of sunny days.
Sorry for the double post, but I really like how the road seems to continue "through" the building.
Wow, amazing shots! I like the embedded flash thing you did there. Really cool. Makes me wish I had a top floor condo :)
Nicely done. I love the interactive Flash image!
Very cool....both the light show last night and your pics!!
Great pictures, as always Sam!
I was on the greyhound to Peterborough from Toronto last night--what a terrifying ride!
It looks like the CN tower is a magnet for lighting strikes (and understandably so)!
I wonder how it must've looked like to the people inside the tower...
Yes folks, there you have it - actual proof that every town needs to be protected by one of our giant lightning rods!

truly amazing work SAM.. so jealous of these shots
Ah, great shots! I myself have been trying to get shots of the lightning yesterday but I failed! XD
You got a long WOOOW! out of me with this one :)
Spectacular display of light and colors.. The result is mind blowing!
Very nice pictures Sam, I love the quality and as said before, the way you posted the multiple images. Nice job.
Now this is a proper storm. They predicted something exactly like this for Ottawa, but we just got fog and now haziness. They expect more storms throughout this week - but as for today it's just a hazy sunny day, no rain! Very humid though.
Very nice shot. At fifteen seconds you must've had to do some darkening because city lights would expose a lot to that!
Applause is right! Impressive. Must learn how to program the camera to take pictures at intervals.
You are amazing Sam!
I was telling Ellie last night: I can't wait to check ddoi tomorrow for Sam's lightning shots! I knew you'd do something awesome again; and you didn't disappoint me one bit!
Brilliant is the word. I'm a fan.
The CN Tower is repeatedly hit by lightening!
"If you're looking for a spectacular lightning show, there's no better seat than finding a safe spot near the CN Tower during a thunderstorm. The tallest freestanding structure in the world is struck by lightning more frequently than any other structure in Toronto, finds a study by university researchers... at least 40 to 50 times annually."
I love your photos of last nights storm!! Amazing. I really love photography and would love to take some courses...anyways great job.
amazing shots! fantastic!
Ugh. Don't cheat by combining photos in Photoshop. Real photos only.
pretty epic shots, i have been trying all summer to catch some shots of the knarly storms we have been having in utah... but unfortunately i don't have a set-up that facilitates this kind of shot. Nice work, i check out your page everyday for a little inspiration!
Another great job Sam.
Cool an fantastic shot! Amazing work
Wow! Sam: you're good!
I especially like the 'interactive' image. Amazing!
Thanks for your daily photos, and for making Toronto your home.
Really great photo! Love the flash images. If you move your mouse to the second image from the right, there appears to be a funnel cloud just to the right of the lightning hitting the tower.
I have to say, I found the number of lights left on in those big (and most likely empty) office buildings on a Sunday mind boggling.
Great shots. I check your site out daily.
Absolutely brilliant work.
Absolutely incredible. My jaw dropped as the screen loaded. Beautiful shots....... yet again.
Amazing photos! I drove home in this last night and it was incredible how much lightning we got!
hey! just saw you on Global talking about the lightning. nice to put a voice to the face! good lightning storms are something i miss viewing out here on the west coast. with the way the forests are out here though, it's probably for the best.
Gorgeous lightning photos! I have a bit of an obsession with capturing lightning on film, but certainly don't have as nice a camera as you seem to have! What do you use?
Also, trying to figure out which direction you're facing from those shots! Absolutely amazing pictures :)
Those are amazing shots! I love your shots of Toronto as I am from Brampton. The storm was crazy intense! Beauty use of Flash as well.
Spectacular images. I think it's the ones I like the best so far on your blog. Congratulations.
Those are some of the best photos I have seen online! You deserve an award!
It seems I have to visit Toronto one day.
Incredible. Very well done! I love lightning shots, and yours are excellent, very nice colors.
It's amazing that how many of them catched the tower...beautiful examples of the power of weather.
I am very often impressed by lightning photos, but I must say that these are some of the best I've seen in a while.
We've had one hour long lightning "storm" here so far...would have loved to have been in Toronto for this. Great view - outstanding sharpness. What a cool little feature to mouse over and see multiple shots, too!
I was on the top floor of the Delta Chelsea during this storm and only wish I had gotten shots a fraction of the quality of yours. Truly beautiful.
thanks for the pictures, and Thanks for the instructions! ( it will be more useful! ;) )
Do you think continous shots is also good?
Just wow! Magnificent shot!!
Hi Sam I will add to what others have said; these are very cool or hot depending on how you look at them.
Awesome. Thanks for the flash version to get a n almost "live" view.
wow wow wow! beautifully captured! fun too!, with the scroll over effect!
i always loved this every since they showed it on cp24!
Hey, those are some cool shots, Love it so much. I hope you dont mind me linking your link in my blog, just to share it to others because those are pictures that very impressive. Nice!
