stormy skies

this evening's stormy-looking scene from my living room windows - although the skies looked threatening, the heavy thunderstorm did not appear after all and only a light rain came down.... and so it is that things may not look as bad as they first appear....

 

Photo Note: Had considered converting this into a monotone B&W but decided against it as I like the contrast of the yellow lights in the faraway building (as a focal point) to the thunderous clouds, and i also didn't want to lose that slight strip of blue at the horizon which is the evening skylight. Shot was taken handheld at ISO400 - I really like the VR function in the 18-200 in such instances :-)
