Stormy sky!!

When I read the local news that said The storm is coming to Fort Myers this weekend, so I knew that I would have 90% to get the great sky of Sunset. And I am not wrong in this prediction. The sky yesterday produce the great Rainbow after a short rain, and it become extraordinary after just a few minute. It was the worst thing ever when I didn't bring my camera along with me. So today my priority is capture the moment of the Sunset. However, because it is the Storm, so I couldn't imagine how strong the wind was blowing my face, it actually blow me away... It was so windy and little bit cold. (not as Seattle though)... Heheh. Lucky that I got used to it when I lived in WA before...^^!


The other thing that I concerned about is where I can find the Foreground??? Among Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel rocks, and flowers, I finally chose Rocks!! With that Windy condition, I knew that I couldn't take a great shot of Flowers, and Fort Myers BEach is kinda boring for me (In fact, I got a really good shot over there, so it could be out of my list now). The last destination was confirmed. I was heading to Sanibel and waiting for almost an hour. I witnessed the cloud was moving too fast. The Sunray appeared in this shot caused by the Cloud moved and covered the Sun. I got a quick decision with this Rock, and shoot constantly with 176 shots!! WOW....:)


And here is the result!! :) Hope you will like it!! (like me... hehe)


I think I still have some more good shots to share with you guys. Hopefully I will have time to edit them this week!!
