Well, it was more like immediately before the storm.  The elapsed time from when I pressed the shutter to when the rain started coming down was unfortunately not equal to the time it took to find shelter from said rain.  Luckily there was a few minutes of light rain before the deluge came, and myself and my equipment were able to stay mostly dry.  I’ve found that some of the best images contain a sky that’s about to punish you for standing under it.

    Great drama in that sky Steven and the color contrast with the house rocks.

    Nice shot, Steven. The red house stand out nicely against the sky.
    I agree, those threatening skies are always a treat for our images.

    Really like the dreary look of this shot. Most of us usually avoid days like this. Your worked it well!

    That looks to be one mega storm brewing! Great contrast between the sky and the red of the building. I also like the little bright patch of sky on the horizon giving us a glimpse of the nicer weather to follow.
