I was getting ready to leave for home after visiting with a friend in Philadelphia.
The trip home through torrential rain and lightning was NOT fun, but the photo was!
The sky really looked this ominous, but my camera's capture was less so. I had to enhance it just a touch.

Great sky and the lighting throughout the entire scene works well with its drama, Michelle. Cool image.

Michelle, the great thing we as photoshooters can do, is bring back the atmosphere that we experienced at the time of the capture, and you have done this so well. Gorgeous image, and great sky!!!

This is why we don't leave home without the camera! Wonderful post processing. Great in fact.

To quote Patricia - this is [definitely] why we don't leave home without the camera!

This is a neat image (and its probably a good thing that it needed a little tweaking - it ended up being really unique.)

You, along with nature, are really a master of mood setting, Michelle.

Beautiful image..very dramatic sky. Wonderful color, detail and clarity. I don't think I would want to be out in it though.
