Rainstorm

Photograph info: This photograph was taken last night. After a drought in March and April, we're now getting more rain than we need, much of it from sudden and wild thunderstorms.

Camera settings and post-processing: Photographed with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L
lens at 45mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 160. Curves adjustments.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!

I like the long, vertical composition. Dramatic.

Late Spring is now here
Now making quite a ruckus
Cumulonimbus

Those eastern summer's,
thick sticky humidity
in truth I've never missed 'em
but our irrigation pipe simply
can't compete with your
holier-than-thou sprinkler system

like so many other works of men
as crops and those who sow them
still at the mercy of the elements
which shape the lives below them

yet we are shaped as we shape the land
and dark forests sprawl between us
being wild as ever a forest can
since the days of Christopher Cumulonimbus

'ts good you venture out, Kathleen
to capture such great wonder
and perchance also to inspire
an occasional poetical blunder:)

Hard to stop staring at this photo.
It may be a storm but it leaves a very peaceful
feeling.

Excellent photo & very sharp colors. And thank you for posting your camera/lens used for each picture; it's extremely helpful for us amateurs. Looking forward to more :)
