.......and that is what I did. The north wind kicked up quite a fuss...this weather system moved in fast. My fingers froze till I couldn't work the camera shutter, so I packed up as fast as I could and ran to the car just in time missing a shower of ice pellets.

20d, 10 - 20mm, ISO 100

Great use of the 10mm end of the lens through which you've tastefully captured such awe inspiring images (especially #2) withalmost tangibleclouds anchored over the city :!:Btw, glad you did not miss the glow of the peering sunon the buildings, which might have cost you a few more frostbites: )

wow! these are incredible images! i'm not sure whether i like the landscape or portrait format better, but i love how the sky is so threatening, low, dark and ominous, yet there's a glimmer of sunlight reflecting from the city.... these are wall-hangers for sure...

I'll tell you what it is - frightening to look at - that's what... This storm looks like it's out for blood...

Thanks to the new comments. It wasn't long after this shot I was running for the car and half way there the hail whipped along sideways helped along by the stiff cold north wind.
