Boldly Going Where iPhones Are Not Supposed To Go
You may not realize that almost all of the photos on this blog are shot with an iPhone. There are a few exceptions (like the previous lightning post say for instance) but, by and large, these are iPhone photos. I have a real camera and I know how to use it but it's just so bulky and time consuming to lug it around and transfer the images from device to device that I have made it my mission to do as much as possible with the camera that fits in my pocket, the iPhone.
On a side note, way back in the day I remember saying "My camera doesn't make phone calls, why do I need my phone to take pictures?!?!" Ha...ha...oh.., I kill me. Famous last words and all.
Anyway, I found a lightning trigger app for the iPhone. Skeptical peeps said it would never work, that no such thing could exist.
Well, I would like to demonstrate that such a thing could exist and, not only that, but it works too!
All of the lightning photos in this post were shot with the iLightningCam2 app. It's not perfect, sometimes it doesn't fire, but when it works it works pretty well!
I'm not much of a storm chaser, unless there's no actual chasing involved. All of these photos were shot from my yard (or in one instance, through my living room window) with a Canon EOS 80d.

Fun With Lightsabers
The following images are not evidence of extraterrestrial life but rather my husband, Johnpaul Vincent, demonstrating his mad skillz with the lightsaber. But seriously, he used to own a martial arts school and taught sword fighting so he does in fact have mad skillz.
There are many reasons why people are drawn to New Mexico, why they come here for a visit and never go home. The expansive and always dramatic skies never disappoint. I have shot many time lapse videos of sunrises and sunsets this year but there are far too many to put them all in one blog post. So, in chronological order, here are the first five. Stay tuned, there's more to come!
The New Mexico skies never disappoint and this tidal wave of clouds rolling over the Manzano Mountains kept me from getting any work done for an entire day because I kept going to window to stare at them even after I came home from taking my photos.
