Rainy Day
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Rainy Day
Rainy Day
f2.8 1/30 midafternoon, available light. This was taken during a spectacular thunderstorm yesterday. My son was pinned to the window watching the lightning, and his crazy mother was outside with an umbrella in one hand, and a camera in the other, praying not to get struck by lightning!

    It must have been really scary being out there in the storm. Your efforts certainly paid off, though! This is a delightful picture. The expression you've cvaptured is priceless and the picture is very nicely composed, too. Your son's eyes are wonderful.
