Join professional landscape and nature photographer Ian Plant as he photographs stormy clouds and lightning as a dramatic storm passes over the landscape of Badlands National Park. Ian demonstrates techniques for capturing lightning with your camera, and he discusses how storm clouds can help you create compelling landscape photos. After the storm has passed, Ian photographs a rainbow, and then he searches for interesting foreground features revealed by the heavy rain, and waits for sunset light to cast brilliant red color on the clouds overhead.
