Since I got my camera I'm dying to get some lightning shots. I had a chance on a plane ride last year with the clouds as a kewl backdrop but we turned jsut as I got my gear ready. THe pics actually look pretty good if you use a polarizer to take the glare off the window from the cabin lights.
Both photos were shot on film. I switched to digital about a year ago and no longer hace any film cameras. I haven't had an opportunity to shoot lightning with the digital yet but hopefully soon. These were shot on a tripod with the shutter at "T". 400 speed film.
