Approaching Storms

Posted by Josh (Madison, Maine, United States) on 26 April 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We haven't had a decent sunset in weeks. It's either been clear sky with no color, or overcast, raining and flat.

Tonight, I was able to capture a few decent images as the sun set, just ahead of a storm system moving in from the south. The red on the left is the light reflecting off of the bottom of the leading edge of the storm clouds. For several minutes there was more color in the sky than I have seen in months.

Please feel free to be as technical as you'd like when commenting, which I invite you to do so honestly and often. I'm looking for brutal, honest feedback. I've got a lot to learn but I can't get better without your assistance.

I am using a Nikon D80 with the 50mm lens, as well as a 75-300mm lens. I don't use filters (because I don't have any), and my experience is self-taught.

Thank you, very much, for visiting this site.
