Before The Rain

By Nick_w      
Taken 45 minutes before my last image imaginatively called, after the Rain (thanks BTW for the reception on that one)

After processing I think I prefer this one. When I was taking this it was raining quite hard, and I made a quick dash to the car 100 yards away, it took 5 minutes to clean and dry the camaera and filters.

Looking forward to the week ahead, I have a few days off looking after my daughter - looking forward to not having to work 12 hour days LOL (already turned the phone off !!!!)

A good choice of viewpoint, the f/g rocks pointing the way into the image....very nicely done. Hope you did not get drenched.....that is a very 'watery' long sky with a lot more to drop on you.

Maybe not quite as dramatic a sky as your previous upload, Nick, but still a super capture with some lovely colours and textures in the foreground Wink
