As seems to be the case more often than not over the last 6 to 8 weeks, this blog has been sorely neglected. I have been traveling a lot for work recently and just returned home from a week in Arizona. The upside to a summer trip to Arizona is that it is Monsoon Season, and I took every opportunity I could to get out and shoot as much weather as possible. The above image is from my first evening storm chasing and actually represents a couple firsts from a technology standpoint.
Not only was it the very first lightning strike captured with my new Sony a6000 camera, it is also the first lightning strike captured with the Lightning Trigger LT-IV that I recently added to my storm chasing kit. I will be going into more detail on my storm chasing experience with both the a6000 and the LT-IV soon, but wanted to share this image as something of a teaser. I will be doing my own full review of the LT-IV soon and my storm chasing experience will be part of my long awaited “why I switched to mirrorless” blog post that I have been working on.
