Here's a series (in no particular order, I numbered them as I edited rather than sequentially) after a fast moving storm this evening. They were all shot with the 18-55 kit lens, many at the short end. No correction for barrel distortion, little if any sharpening, and only tweaked in ps to get them closer to what it really looked like tonight.

Not really meaning any offense but pretty common weather, at least down here this time of year....the frequent summer non sunset. (yet winter can be far too clear and just orange ball)

Then again this was a sort of sppoky one, early Aug.... didn't catch it but lightning too.

And actually having grown up in CT, and you way up there (well inland)... surprised you have that good a west view... must be way up on a hill and smaller one to the west. (actually reviewing, 3rd shot sort of shows that at least were you were at the moment.)

You're sooo lucky to have all these nice storms!:-)

Good capture, CC, rich in nuances and a sharpness that makes the details come out well. I also like your composition with the horizon kept very low.

I am envious of your location, Hayward. I grew up in Miami but wasn't into photography yet. The wildlife, weather patterns, and those daily thunderstorms in the summer would make for daily wonderful opportunities.

This was the first interesting dayfall we've had in weeks, and that spot up on Cedar Mountain' is the only location I can see the sunsets from. A pity, really, because when the light comes from sets like those it's often more interesting to shoot what it's fallin ON, but I've nothing about to take advantage of for that. I tried to do a pano of my limited view, but the distortion from the 18mm lens made stitching it just about impossible.

CC, that first one is fantastic and the rest aren't too shabby either!

These are very nice, the first one is awesome! We don't have interesting weather like this very oftenso any sunset/sunrise with any color at all is special to me.
