This is an image I took a few weeks ago when out photographing with my friend dav.d. We went out with the intention of doing light painting, but got there with enough time to get some HDR of the awesome storm clouds rolling in. This image is a reminder that pretty, crisp, clean, sunny days don’t always make the best images … extreme weather and crazy clouds can sometimes make the landscape photo even better.

    Nice use of HDR. Very subtle. Storm clouds are great to photograph until it starts pouring :) I got stuck under a highway underpass for an hour once while taking lightning pics.

    Good work! I Nice composition and the clouds give an other dimension marked by dynamics.
