Testing a borrowed camera I caught this storm as it passed behind us to the east.

Been pulling at least that much out of my beds every other week ALL summer long! Gave it a way for the first two months, sold all summer long, donated two truck loads to various events when the gardens were peaking and no way no how could pot and sell that much and am now back to giving bags and bags of them away. Couple more rounds to go as I work each bed over one last time.

You'd think my yard would be empty picturing what I've passed out the door this year but actually it's the first time in the long run that I could actually shift things into place to where they can grow naturally to their fullest without my yearly chopping off edges to control their size. There will still be areas in which I will have to do that but it will be a LOT less maintenance for me in the future.

The capture device is a lightning trigger. It's a pretty cool little device that connects to your camera via the hot shoe and a cable. It's about the size of a deck of cards.The trigger senses the infrared light that proceeds a lightning bolt. When the trigger senses the infrared light it triggers the cameras shutter and basically captures the bolt as it happens. All that is left for me to do is go through and pick my best shots. I still have to compose the shots and set the proper exposures and then I just let the trigger push the shutter button.

The trigger I purchased is called "The Lightning Bug" and is made by a company called MK Controls. I purchased it at a cost of $150.00 but I think they run around $180.00 now. There are other triggers out there and some cost more and some less. All of the lightning triggers are also good for capturing fireworks too. I purchased mine because I wanted to capture daytime shots of lightning which is very difficult to do,

We don't get a lot of lightning showers here but oh how I'd love to have one of those for the few that we do. I think that is one awesome addition.
I wouldn't mind having one of those at all. Oh honey.... A few hints here and there, a birthday present in the brewing?
