Passing Summer Tempest
When this nasty storm cloud was passing overhead I kept running outside in the rainstorm to look for a rainbow since it was doing the rain in sunshine thing (my neighbors must think I'm nuts), and just as the whole storm cloud became visible in my viewfinder a rainbow appeared! This image sort of reminds me of that storm cloud with rainbow photo going around G+ so I thought I had better share it.
Happy Friday All!
Shot Notes: Single -1.3 EV frame blended with a 7-frame HDR to help pop cloud detail. I shot this on my Nikon D700 in FX mode using the Tokina 11-16 at 16mm. I think for a DX lens it does a fine job acting as a 16 mm prime for FX (I'm not shooting in DX mode, but only 16 is usable).
