You were giving too much control to the camera. For lightning shots you should be in manual mode as the camera is trying to get a correct (medium gray) exposure for the dark sky and knows nothing about the "never there" lightning.

30 sec at f/8 with ISO 100 is not a bad place to start, although f/11 or f/16 might be better.
