Essex and a Lumedyne 2


Well, now that I rebuilt my Lumedyne battery (not only rebuilt it, but also increased its capacity by 50% over the factory rating), I figured a full-scale test would be in order.  So I decided to head down to Essex, CT and shoot the Valley Railroad’s equipment after dark.  I also invited Nick Palazini to join me for the evening’s festivities.  So we met up at Essex and started shooting around the grounds.  Needless to say, the new battery performed flawlessly!

Nick & I spent a good 2 hours at Essex shooting mostly Lumedyne lit shots, and a handful of ambient lit ones.  Instead of explaining each, here’s the entire set in one shot.  As usual, feel free to leave a comment if you wish.
