Strange storm 7-31-10 by Tailgun2009 Strange storm 7-31-10 by Tailgun2009
Thunderstorms happen almost every afternoon in the summer. This is the start of one of them. I had to shutdown because of the storm so heres the start of it.

Nice color contrast in this photo. There's something dramatic about blue-tinged storm clouds lit by warm light (I always like them around sunset) and you captured that perfectly here.

We do have the storms........for sure. I caught one last night....the storm, itself, hit Boca Raton. The sky in Miami was different than I have ever seen. No time to upload yet. Marcia

The only thing I did to it was darken it some to look like it was when I took it.

How did you catch those colors
Reply
:icontailgun2009:
Tailgun2009 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
It really was unusual. The sun was going down so the red was reflected in the clouds and the sky was a dark blue as the storm moved in. Must of the area around this shot was very black.

Why did you use such a high shuttertime ?
Reply
:icontailgun2009:
Tailgun2009 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
These storms come in at 30mph or faster so not much time other than using full auto. A slower shutter speed would have probably made it a blur.
