Three days of 90 to 97 degree (f) temps and a cold front moving in...

We got lucky--most of the really bad weather went either northeast or southeast of us.

This was shot just after a cool front storm moved through Louisville the other night. A little experiment with my new *istDLusing a little exposure compensation and set on auto. Oh well.... thats what I get for getting 2nd class equipment, I regret it everytime I twist on those old K type lenses and think of the money I could have spent for new ones:G:G. Great Job Pentax. My son just got him a new Canon Rebel 350 XT with a NEW zoom lens....special little batteries... special little charger. Now he hashis new Canon, and his old lenses set in the closet with his old canon cameras. I hate it, but I tried to convince him otherwise. I sure do like those AA or CR-V3s and my $15.00 multi use battery charger. Not to memtion the new SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD cards thatdon't require a card reader.

Rickst,

It finally got here and I finally got outside to take a photo of the storm rolling in.

DS and Kit Lens!

Very nice shot--I hope you didn't get any hail out of those clouds.

Thanks, I shot it just at dusk from the end of my driveway. I took three shots and this one where I metered on the bright part of the clouds came out the best and it isn't a bad image considering it was with the kit lens.

No hail at my house, but a few miles away there was quite a bit.

Understatement!

It makes me remember grannys big Bible from the 19th century, with full page drawings of events in the book. They always had a dramatic sky over Kain killing his brother or Moses coming down from the mountain with the ten commandments or something like that. For a little kid those pictures were quite impressing. Your storm would fit in that Bible.

Awesome photos! They are dramatic enough that I want to run for cover!
