Lightning Clouds II
Yesterday I told how we had a rare and full value lightning storm a couple of weeks ago, and how I ventured out to take pictures, though not of the lightning as I was too timid (I like to think smart) to take my tripod with me. Instead I went to take shots of the clouds and sky and light. Within 10 minutes of leaving the front door I was in a torrential downpour, one of many that swept over the area.
Today’s pictures are mostly in black and white – these kinds of skies lend themselves so well to this treatment. And, in one way or another, distant or up close, they feature rain. It accompanies the clouds and a setting sun struggling for space beneath the clouds.
