Dramatic skies over Long Reef

After a dusk shoot with Johnno, we were trudging back to the car and spied these interesting clouds and pathway.

Despite being tired, it was definitely worth stopping for a shot or two.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobra_11] Yeah, even there it looked like it might have dropped rain on us (didn't though).
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ross_m] Saw it and couldn't resist. ;-)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/vtilman] No HDR here, that's the result of lighting conditions and a neutral grad filter.
