“Wicked Sky”

I posted this shot on Facebook from my work computer, which lacks Lightroom and a calibrated monitor.  From my vantage point at the time, I didn’t see the full potential.

My friend Molly said that it was a “Wicked Sky”, but I didn’t see it that way at the time.  From home, with the benefit of a calibrated monitor and LR to interpret it, I definitely do see that. 

I guess I was still remembering trying to frame the shot while being pelted with cold, driving rain being driven into my left ear, and didn’t really appreciate the intensity of the sky itself.


ISO 200, f/16, 1/30 second, 16mm.  Tones adjusted in Lightroom 3, sensor crud (dammit!) excised in Photoshop.
