It’s Behind You!

Sunset #7

Gathering Storm at Sunset…

I was looking to photograph a sunset recently and, to be honest, it wasn’t going to be much of one. There wasn’t much colour or interest to make the effort worthwhile. I was about to pack up and go home and turned round to get my kit bag only to be confronted with an excellent cloud display sweeping in ahead of a storm. I quickly switched location and started snapping. There was some sunset colour in the approaching clouds but when I started to process the images I found that they perfectly suited black & white.

Lightroom 5.6 and Silver Efex Pro2 was used to produce this image. The immediate foreground was deliberately underexposed to add drama to the sky.

The storm broke overnight with a heavy rain and an amazing electrical storm.

The moral of this little story? ALWAYS look behind you before you give up…
