Stormy Weather
Title: Stormy Weather by Me

Here’s an example of why it pays to always have your camera with you. It was a very rainy day, too heavy to really even think about pulling my equipment out. I had spent most of the afternoon in a coffee shop. Shortly before I left though, the rain finally broke and the clouds broke for the sun. Remarkably though, they only broke at the western edge of the sky, just enough to let the sunlight shine through on everything below the cloudscape. So the tower was in direct sunlight underneath storm clouds – really cool lighting, as you can see.

The image is a five frame HDR tonemapped with Photomatix – it was the only way I could preserve the amazing cloud details while preserving how the tower looked.
