Having found this composition I was confident that in the right light there was a decent shot to be made. However it was quite stormy as I started to set up and the weather looked as if it could go either way. I settled down to wait but after a while it started to spit with rain. I was thinking about packing up when the rain stopped and the sun shone through a gap in the clouds to my left. A wipe of the filter and I fired off 4 quick shots checked the histogram and that was it. The sun was gone and that was my lot.
