(FINALIST - May '09 - Nature & Landscape)
Inclement weather brought these awesome clouds over Islamabad in April '09. I snapped a few shots from my house rooftop, seconds before it started to rain. This one is a composite of two such shots. The originals are placed in the thread. Layers and adjustments in PS CS2.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
