I was at the Ashokan Reservoir shooting the other day and turned around to see this cloud formation in my viewfinder. Couldn't resist. Only had one opportunity as the formation dissolvedas I was reviewing the picture. This was taken with my new Sigma 20mm 1.7 lens at f/9.5. Enjoy! Comments always welcome.

I recently purchased the Sigma 20mm and have been extremely happy. I have only taken about 150 shots, mostly my son's theatre school doing a performance at the local mall and it was fabulous. Great clean, clear, crisp shots. The performance was 95% dancing and it handled it great. Very happy so far!

Monoltanut, you're not kidding. It was a very calm, sunny day while I was driving to the spillway. As soon as I got out of the car the wind started blowing and the clouds rolled in, I was only able to get about 50 shots before I gave in to the wind. As soon as I got back in the car the wind stopped and the sun came out. How wierd is that? My first thought was someone was trying to tell me not to take pictures there that day...

We have clouds like this quite frequently here...(my pic by the way...just used trial version of photomatix to bring out the detail that I saw, that the camera didnt see...hence the watermark. The 'hdr' was done with 1 jpg, hence the high noise level...it was an experiment. But since you were on the topic of clouds, and this is the alpha forum, I thought I would share a pic)

Peace

Very cool shot and looks like the lens is doing a nice job.

As you are quite new you might not yet have noticed that Steve's forum works a little different to other (lesser LOL) forums in that there is a section for posting your work and by doing this a much wider audience will get to see the great things that are captured.

Happy shooting
