Coming Storm

I had photographed this tree/bush a couple of weeks prior but with clear skies. When I looked up and saw the ominous clouds one day, I high-tailed it back to the same spot. I use a Leica Monochrom camera so I attached a red filter to get the clouds to pop against the dark sky. This was taken at Rattlesnake Bar on Folsom Lake. This is entirely covered with water now as I write this on June 14, 2022. This picture was taken the Spring of 2021. The lake will likely look like this again in just a couple of months.

Fantastic clouds! like the way the lighter “V” frames the tree. Nicely seen, David.

Stunning, what impact. I couldn’t imagine it as anything but in black and white. Thank you.
