A Lull in the Storm

By KingArthur
The Islands underwent some violent storms the other week ...

This shot was taken during a lull in between hail showers and thunderstorms, feeble rays of sun managing to pentrate the thick cloud cover giving some glorious lighting ..... it only lasted a few minutes but looked spectacular!

Shot on location in monochrome (thanks to my compact), breaking up a meeting to sneak out and make the capture lol!

Hope you like the monochrome, viewed large if possible. Thanks for viewing.
