P i c a r d y S t o r m c l o u d s

By AnnChown  
We're just back from a long weekend in the Somme - I didn't get anything very exciting, but we enjoyed watching these stormclouds form one evening while we were having dinner. I didn't manage to capture any lightning strikes, but we did at least stay dry. Three images stitched together in PSE - comments and criticisms are very welcome, and thanks for your time.
Thanks Moira for putting me right on the sizing on my original upload - I'm hoping it's better this time!

Wonderful shot of that glorious sky, Ann. I think the previous was better. Now the panoramic view is too small, the normal view is to large to fit, you have to move the slider, but that's me.

Yes much more satisfying like this! With full-size panos you almost always have to use the slider, but it's worth it for the dramatic sweep across the screen. And still kept firmly anchored down by that dark strip of land below.

One of the advantages of my Dell U2412M is it just crops off a sliver at either end of a pano like yours. Superb atmospheric sky, Ann.

We stayed at St Firmin just outside of Le Crotoy. We've stayed there before on our way back from other areas but have never specifically stayed there. It was wonderful - just love the area.

Drama in the sky is my favourite time, you can feel the heat up there in the clouds.

Have a Wee Tree with my compliments Ann.
