Let's See Colors That Have Never Been Seen by catch---22 Let's See Colors That Have Never Been Seen by catch---22
Let's see colors that have never been seen.
Let's go to places no one else has been.

You're in my mind all of the time.
I know that's not enough.
Well if the sky can crack, there must be some way back
To love and only love.

Electrical Storm...


[link] U2 - electrical storm



----------
the storms were breaking near sunset. so I decide to make a quick run to the flats. I underestimated the slowness of the rains and was mostly sitting, watching it pour. As I was moving down the road trying to get to the edge of the storm, the rain stopped and I saw this in the rear view mirror. I jumped out and before I could even reach for my tripod the big drops started again. so I dialed up the iso and shot two images while cursing and then ran for cover... I kind of like this one.

Sometimes I wish we got skies like that here. Others, not. Wonderful. Makes you realise the small size we are.

we get the big skies to make up for the flat land... a fair enough tradeoff.

Sounds like what I do, only I lift the camera into place, click the shutter and......no card in camera! Happens every time!
Either that or the battery is dead.
This is a great shot, Yet again another reason I should have a wide angle lens. Yup, for sure.
