Clouds over the Lough

Clouds gather and block out the sun over the Lough in Cork last year. The display was beautiful as light wispy clouds and dark brooding rain clouds skirted across the sky.

The sun made one final effort to shine, but the clouds won out and it started to rain moments later.

    Thanks! I’ll take your comment as a complement Earl! 🙂

    I had to spent about half an hour fixing the exposure between the bright sky and the dark ground. I think I used different channel mixer settings for both areas too. A low "blue" value does wonderful things for deep blue skies!
