Between the Storms

Posted by
Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 19 December 2006 in Landscape & Rural.

This is another shot from my trip down Route 1 yesterday. I dodged rain showers along the way. One can be seen just offshore in this image. I deliberately metered on the sky to bring up the clouds. I suppose I could run this through Lightroom to bring up the detail in the hills without throwing off the rest of the image... but I'm feeling kind of lazy just now.

I have yet to see a storm shower over the water away from me here on my coast. You've got me wanting to go out there and start chasing them.

Nice shot John! I like the composition, the color, and the exposure! Well done!

Nice 'calm before the storm' shot. You actually got some good clouds and blue sky in there. Nice curves in the composition.

We are due for another wind storm tomorrow. Batten down the hatches!
