I was very lucky to get this shot this afternoon! I was running late (battling the traffic), and arrived on location at Mordialloc Pier just as the sky decided to open up and drench me. I had come too far to give up that easily, so I waited in the car until the rain let up as the sun started to disappear below the horizon to the west, allowing me to capture this photo.
The cloudscape was actually quite harsh and jagged, and I felt that it was too much of a distraction to the overall scene, so I applied the Orton effect to soften it up (and also to hide the ghosting of the people moving around at the far end of the pier).
