This past week has had some pretty crazy weather in Southern Utah. The entire week consisted of lightning striking constantly and amazing cloud formations. Both of these things are extremely unusual for this area, with the norm being clear, blue skies without a cloud in sight. So when these rare instances of Mother Nature flexing her muscles and showing off her raw power, you definitely take advantage because who knows when this opportunity will happen again.
I’ve tried a couple times to capture timelapses in the past, but my current gear setup at the time, especially my lens, wasn’t cut out for the task and resulted in lackluster finished products. But last week was a different story! If you follow me on twitter (which you should, @keysormedia), you know that I just upgraded my Canon t3i to the Canon 5D Mark II with the 24-105mm f/4.0L kit lens and threw the very necessary Magic Lantern firmware on it.
