It was lovely all morning as I sat in the office, so, come lunchtime I shot out to Roydon and the River Stort. As I rummaged about in the back getting my gear together I was aware of some pretty dark clouds in the vicinity so grabbed my brolly as well. I’d got about 5 minutes away from the car when an enormous clap of thunder sounded and the wind picked up. I grabbed this picture and dashed back to the car, narrowly avoiding a drenching.

10 minutes after I got back to the office the sun was out shining brightly again…

I processed this with the new Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 trial – looks pretty good on first impressions but takes a lot longer to process the files compared with photomatix.
