Wonderful light and sky

...Fire off as many frames as possible, I'd say.

The hail storm might be the main event, but it's the inclusion of that light in the distance that puts it firmly into award territory.

Welcome back Dougie.

What do I o? Head back to the car, though not as fast as Bill!
This is fabulous, it tells the story so simply but impressively. Weighted down by atmosphere.

Well I am astonished at the first image from my trip to the Hebrides, dramatic weather and some sunshine, rain , hail and a touch of snow on the tops of the Harris Hills.

I'll tell you tomorrow how I handled the incoming hail here.

Thanks Again nice welcome back to EPZ.

What to do? Put the shutter on continuous and get as many images as possible before beating an extremely hasty retreat!

Welcome back, Dougie.
