Lightning Storm and 5d mark II

We had a spectacular lightning storm roll through last week. I had never seen anything like it. The lightning was so intense and there was no rain, great for photographing. I grabbed my camera and starting taking some shots. I was using the the 5d mark II so I decided to do some HD video. I wanted to keep the definition of the clouds as they lit up but I think maybe I could have opened up the exposure a little. The best view was unfortunately through the power lines.

Birthday Walk

Took Ripley swimming and for a walk around Nokomis. She loves swimming but had become really picky about which sticks she would fetch. We found and old retrieving trainer on the lake shore a few weeks ago. She loved it and would sit and retrieve it all day long if we let her. When it's time to go, we hide it in the bushes until next time. Now, every time we walk around the lake she runs for those bushes
