A swirling mass of churning nature begins to envelope the peaceful landscape of the Shenandoah Valley. Expecting pitchforks and lightning bolts at any moment, we gaze in awe as Mother Nature stirs and spins the heavens. Better get back in the house ... there's no telling what's coming!
On the evening of March 27, 2017, the vision in the sky outside my front door was a bit unnerving. Instead of a lovely blue expanse of setting sun and puffy, gentle clouds, I looked out at a sight both dramatic and scary. Between the mountains where we are, we frequently get some pretty amazing skies. But on this night, the sight was even more astonishing. Oddly ... I don't remember a subsequent storm.
A little background. In my hurried excitement to "get the shot" I grabbed the nearest camera and slapped on the handy semi-wide angle lens (the 18-200mm) that was sitting on my desk, not realizing I was putting a DX lens onto my full-frame D750. The photographers of you out there will realize what that means. Therefore, the image you see has been ... well, let's call it "adjusted." I wanted it to be as close to straight out of the box as I could get it, but I would have had to crop half the good stuff out of it. The goal then became to make the image as near to what I'd seen as possible. Therefore ... as with so much of my stuff, it was Photoshop To The Rescue.
