Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Wonderful photos. I have tried so many times to get lightning but have never managed it yet! I am jealous. Diane

The trick to capturing lightning for me has become video then pull out the single frame.

Great captures, especially the lightning. I've got a number of lightning photos on my blog, they're tough to catch but it can be done with a long exposure.
