Picture of incoming bad weather with sleet
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera August 30th 2007. Click image for larger view.

Seems like the autumn is here to stay.
In this photo you can see some bad weather coming in from the sea. Those “streaks” you see in the horizon, on the photo, is sleet that arrived at my home a few hours later. I’m not a big fan of sleet, but I think it made a cool picture.

Focal Length: 22 mm
ISO Speed: 100

    Excellent picture. The lighting and composition is very good. It’s a forboding scene.

    Nok et flott bilde, godt gjort å få bygen så tydelig og jeg er enig med kml, fint med lyset i bakgrunnen.

    Great picture – a kind of compensation for having to endure such weather is the photo opportunities it provides
