Before the Storm
This was shot literally minutes before a (very brief) storm hit this evening. I was stepping out on the balcony to clean Guinness's cage, and saw this combination of fall colors, bright sunset light and dark stormy sky simultaneously.
I had to do it. I put Guin's cage down, ran inside and grabbed my camera. There was no way I was missing this shot!
Shot with the plastic fantastic, and the only post-processing was to brighten the shadows in the bottom 1/4 of the image somewhat. That combination of colors: That was mother nature, baby!
