Five exposures taken with a Panasonic Lumix G3, combined and tonemapped in Photomatix, and finished in Photoshop.
I spent this one of the first weekends of 2012 with friends in Manzanita on the Oregon coast and experienced some of the craziest weather I've seen in a long time. It was sunny, then snowing, then showering, then hailing, then sunny again, then thundering, then snowing, then raining, then more sun, etc, etc, etc. We were driving around looking for photo ops and I'd see a place where the light was hitting a mountain just perfectly, we'd rush to pull over, and be the time the car was at a full stop just seconds later, the light had already moved on. This photo is great proof - thunderclouds on the right moving in to take over the beautiful sky and sunset on the left. I'm glad I caught this view before the beautiful sky was completely swept away.
