Storm clouds #1

The first of a series of a thunderstorm moving in over Dax in southwest France on 23 June 2006. I was more than happy to shoot away, but I definitely should have had my tripod with me. The rain and hail streaks to the left were just amazing. I boosted the contrast here to make it more like the real thing (I shot all of these on P because I feared the spectacle would go away), and sadly, this adds a bit of graininess.


-Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as personal favourite.
