Of course, when chasing sunsets it's always overcast. And so it will probably go with the Lightning Trigger.

I've only had one successful lightning attempt. And it scared the heck out of me. That was two years ago. I used the L.T. since on the same porch, (nothing to show from it - this "window" on the sky being too narrow) but I could set the camera up and go inside. This one was too close for comfort (if I didn't see the shot, I'd swear it hit 50 yards away, not the 1/2 mile or more distance that it was).

That looks VERYclose! Excellent shot though, so worth it from my end.

You do have a slim window there, but far better framing for a good lightning picture!
