MB photo shoot

Light: Ra Clicky 140Cgt

I was driving home a little before midnight when I noticed the nice cloud formations that the moon was peeking through, so I decided to stop for some photos. I ended up spending almost two hours in Morro Bay, down by the beach, taking 15 second shots of the lights across the harbor and, later, me using the Clicky for various lighting effects. It worked very nicely, both as a very dim glow for making camera adjustments and as a bright burst to reflect some lighting off a tree. At the end of the night, when I got home, I found that I'd reached the end of the duracell that came with it, it would no longer even try to burst. I tried it again a little later and it would kick up to burst but immediately drop, though I think it may have only dropped back to 100, rather than the usual halving.
