time lapse is a series of images taken from the same spot over a period of time.
slow shutter speed does what it says on the tin.
time lapse would give a very different end result to these images

I was expecting something along the lines of below, as opposed to lightning storms or flashes. Put my anorak away now.

Great pic Mike - is that you on the tractor or were you taking the photograph?

Didn't Lightnings used to chop the kneecaps off pilots whose thighs were too long when they ejected?

Speaking of ejection - I give you Robert Calvert aka Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters (Hawkwind).
