Full Frame Cometh

I'm doing ok with the switch to Cimzia. Not great ... just ok. I have been having up and down weeks with all of the spring storms coming through Oklahoma. What I'm dreading is the start of mowing season. Our yard is three acres with a lot of trees and fence to weed eat around. I have put this off about as long as I can.

I have still not sold my last bike yet. I am riding it around the block every couple of weeks to keep it up. I am in the process of buying a full frame Nikon for milky way season this year. I have been shooting a lot of lightning over the past month. I am feeling pretty good about lightning now, having several good shots with each storm that passes over us. In the past, I had shot  ... maybe five good shots all of my life. I am shooting 5-10 keepers with every storm now. I'm loving getting back into photography as a distraction.

Wow, we don't see many big electrical storms with such intensity here in upstate NY.
We did have a system move in last Saturday that really ruined my day, so I have mixed feelings about storms and big weather fronts.
Your pictures look great, I love lightning.
My bike is in the basement, but it is still wet, windy, and cool here so I have time. This was my second injection of Humira last week (One of two that I missed over the years), but no miracles yet.
My wrist and fingers are in bad shape, but I can still put a brace on and work out on the total gym twice a week plus my feet have been getting better so I can walk a bit more.
We shall see if I can get much use out of the KLR this year so I may end up in the same boat as you pretty soon. Each ride is a small victory for me so it's all good.
At the end of May I will retire from my job at the college with very mixed feelings, but I won't have to worry about getting to work every day and can always find part time stuff. My department has already asked me to teach a lab or two in the fall so I will still be able to see friends and interact with students.
So glad to see you are still posting and having fun with photography.
Take care.
