Thanks Leanne!
It's actually one of the first shots I made with the Fuji S2 Pro.
Hope you're having a good spring, Larry #1220024

Beautiful scene Larry! Did you ad any effect to this. Very ethereal. #1220589

This shot is right out of the camera, I didn't even do any sharpening as it took away from the effect. Just a slow shutter speed and a lot of hail. The sky was black with storm clouds so the light was really low.
Thanks for the nice comments, Larry #1221730

Larry, what I love about this shot is that it looks like either a painting or that it was created in software with some soft whitewash filtering effect until you realize that it was done by mother nature. Sort of a software picture with a mother nature reversal effect. I love the colors. #1282610

Alejandre, Jim and Lorri; Thanks for the encouraging comments I really appreciate it!
