Lightning shutter trigger 2.0 - another picture

flashYesterday, we got a thunderstorm. Usually, when people are on vacation, they prefer a nice weather. This is not the case for us Smile. We took the car, and drove to a place a few kilometers southwest of Ancelle, the small village where we are staying for a week, in south of french Alps.

Our flash detector triggered several times, but we got only two pictures. Only one displays a flash. The other one was triggered by a distant intra-cloud lightning, and it's hardly visible on the picture. Other detections came from flashes in our back (yes!) or on our sides. Conclusion: I'm happy with sensitivity of this version of the trigger Smile.

Here are the two pictures:



The above picture is the of the intra-cloud flash. There is a slight color difference for the cloud where the flash triggered.
