good tripod and a competitive price, I have also found that carrying my Omipod  in my backback to give me a bit of an edge when carrying my tripod is just not an obtion when out covering breaking news

Mark you have a link for the Omipod?

Nice work, I really need to try this! Any advise???

Best advice is to shoot in manual mode, use extended exposure but try to keep under 30 seconds. Use ISO of 100-200, shoot in RAW so you can do post processing if need be. If you have a remote shutter release it's preferred, always use a tripod. But above all be safe! Try to shoot storms that are many miles away.
These are the settings I used for this photo hope this helps.

Manual mode
ISO 100
15 seconds exposure
18mm focal length (Nikon kit lens 18-55mm)
