Update 6/10/13: I won Second Place with this shot! The first Place shot was of llightning bolts coming out from between two giant clouds. It was a very well done shot.
I have been having a hard time trying to decide on an image for my photo club’s Monthly Challenge. The June topic is Weather. I had several photos that might have worked but they just were not dramatic enough. I finally decided on the one posted below. While I was on vacation a couple of years ago, I went to the beach early one morning after a night full of storms. I parked my car and headed for the beach and just as I rounded a corner I saw all of these clouds with the sunrise lighting them up. I took a bunch of shots as fast as I could as I walked toward the edge of the water. The couple in the chairs got up and walked away after I took just a couple of shots. It was all just a matter of being fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time with my camera in hand.
Here is my submission shot –
Until next time —
