Lol Angi! It looked horrendous but actually there was only a little soft hail. I have not tweaked this - this is how it looked. Viv

Looks awfully harsh... I guess the closet I've seen to that big black one was the clouds of cyclone gonu... but I wasn't in the least afraid.
Good capture viv of the power of good ole Mother Nature! Smile

I think part of what makes this so dramatic is that you can see bright blue sky right there against the black clouds. It's a stunning contrast.

The depth in those grey clouds is pretty scary, but I'm sure you'll be safe with your trusty (and ubiquitous!) umbrella! Smile! It's good, it's damned good!

What a capture. Love that low cloud - I feel I could reach up and touch it. What a fabulous exposure, Viv. Cat
