Extraordinarily low clouds coming in under a higher level of cloud cover.

This doesn't do it justice, but it's still a striking image. Don't you think?

Yes, it is striking, and it's hard to analyze exactly what makes such a complex image successful. It would take so many words that it's best to look and enjoy.

Very unusual... if you are so inclined, could you please post the full frame? I'd be interested in seeing the "battle" in more context...

Here's the uncropped version.

The lone tree in the lower left corner adds some context. Unfortunately, I knew it was about to pour so I didn't take the time to change lenses, and when I grabbed my camera, it already had the 28-105 mounted, so 28mm is as wide as I could go.If I tried to get more context, I wouldn't have gotten as much of the clouds. And the cloudswere the stars of this show.

BTW, this shot is toward the northeast, late in the afternoon, so the Sun is over my left shoulder.

Thanks for the additional reference. Looks like your photo wood make a good background for some fantasy art.

Nice panorama. I don't know much about doing panos but it seems to me you must have been quick to catch all those shots and still get the images of theclouds where you could merge their images without much work.
