    “I only had a short while to grab a few shots…” 8 shots * 5 exposures!!!

    Very dramatic – I love the way the storm totally blocks out the landscape. I can see I need to try something like this.

  • Thanks for your comments. I landed up chasing to get ahead of the storm and then nearly got run over by a vehicle screaming around the corner when returning to our vehicle (it was a little narrow road), but all was worth it. I am really pleased with the way this one came out.
