And Then the Moon Came Out

Posted by
MissT (Chicagoland, United States) on 27 May 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I was heading out to an open area, intending to capture the sunset. When I looked the other way, I saw these massive clouds taking up a huge portion of the sky. They turned out to be more interesting than the sunset, and because they were distant I had the chance to capture my first lightning shots (which was totally unexpected)! Shot on May 3, 2012, 8:27pm.

NIKON D5100 1/2 second F/5.6 ISO 640 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Fantastic that you turned around. What an unexpected surprise, and reward. The lightening is perfect. The moon stunning.

Ottima gestione della luce , in una scenografia, come scrivi , che imponeva una scelta,
Sempre luce ....anche il colore ..ma luce .
La "fisica" universitaria insegna .
Ottimo lavoro e preziosa condivisione.
