Answer to Photography Quiz:
If you answered "c" you are correct.

Says my son,  a civilian weatherman for the U.S. Air Force :
"When you were taking 8 second exposures to capture lightning and didn't realize the shutter was pressed again as you started walking back inside.

Shame I'm not an already famous photographer; I could probably call this 'art' and sell it!"
