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!!! #10163259

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.) #10168351

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.
