This is a companion photo to an image posted earlier. The previous image, “Batten Down The Hatches” was shot about a minute after this photo – when the storm had become even more threatening.
Technically speaking, this isn’t a great shot. The shutter speed (1/3 sec.) was way too slow resulting in some blurriness – and the ISO was too high (at 800) causing noise. That goes to show you how dark it was when these shots were taken. A tripod would have made more sense – but I was in danger of getting soaked at any second.
Vital Stats: Canon 40D w/Canon 10-22mm @ 10mm ISO800, f/6.4, 1/3 sec.
