I really love that light that comes with the sun very low on the horizon and a storm almost upon you. That’s exactly what happened the other day on the beach. Everyone had left when the sky turned threatening. I tried to stick it out as long as possible because I saw that the sun was poking underneath the clouds as it set in the west. All I needed was a bit of luck. If the storm held off until the light softened and warmed just enough I had the chance for a nice image of the empty beach.
This was my very last shot, standing in the shallow surf as a wall of heavy rain had just started pelting me in the back. The onset of rain was so sudden and violent that my camera started getting seriously soaked during the 3 sec. exposure. I quick shoved it under my shirt and made a mad dash for the safety of the car, bolts of lightning hitting disturbingly nearby. They tell you not to be on the beach in thunderstorms like that, and now I understand exactly why. Thanks for looking!
