Distant squall

By oldgreyheron      
Nearer home, and from the archives (before the Canons).

Taken on an otherwise fine day in the summer on Redcar beach. The weather in the distance towards Huntcliffe and Saltburn was very threatening!

1/210s @ f8.2

There is much more to see if you choose to view large. Thank you for looking, Mike

Super shot Mike. Lovely composition (the horizon is straight (LOL)) and I hope you didn't get wet with the imminent rain. Very moody pic.

This really is a fine shot. It certainly shows the change in weather, and of course the storm light is always spectacular.

Like this, it's a very moody shot & the boat on the beach gives FG interest

The looming menace in the sky reminds me why I'm happier on land! There's not a soul to be seen on the beach: bet they think like me....

Superb shot.

Captured the sense of in-coming storm superbly - wonderful sky and the light is fantastic.

Good squally pic, Mike. At least the squall is delineated; today it was one massive system, from one horizon to the other. This looks better.
