Storm Clouds

What lousy weather we had all weekend - Rain, rain and more main. The only good thing about storms is the intense clouds that they bring with them. You have to wait out the storm or be in front of it as it comes rolling in. If conditions are right and the sun is low in the sky (morning or night), you can catch some dramatic clouds with backlighting.

Sunday after a weekend of rain, it started to clear up. I took a ride up US1- Boston Post Road into Town of Mamaroneck where they have a harbor on the Sound. Only had about a 10 minute break in the clouds that let a little blue sky peek thru.

I think the hardest part of photography is to plan well to be in the right place at the right time. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I’ve been noticing this spot for a while now and was waiting for the right situation to go with a camera. Got it right yesterday and this has become a instant favorite of mine
this is beautiful!

Harbor Island Park? I was there yesterday too! Too funny! What gorgeous, dramatic skies you captured! I didn't capture anything nearly as dramatic though - we were on the motorcycle so we went when it was perfectly sunny, and I only had my iPhone.

Stormy days are not good for going out, but they often produce stunning water photos. You nailed this one!

Great shot. Love the reflection on the water from the break in the clouds.
posted October 3rd, 2011  
Really great shot and interesting. It's like the right third of the shot and the left two-thirds are two separate shots merged into one because the line of light and dark are so distinct. I really like this - your patience paid off!
