Description

I chose this location to shoot based on it being one of my favorite spots, and the afternoon thunder storms forecast in this area. Soon after hiking down one of the unmarked trails, the sky opened up producing hail and dramatic lightning bolts. I waited until the hail and rain had dissipated, and then set up for a shot. I chose a long exposure because I wanted to portray this scene the way I had felt it, witnessing the drama of the clouds rushing by overhead, and how the storm light produced such intense contrast between the sky and water.
