Symphonic by ColinHSillerud Symphonic by ColinHSillerud
I shot this in the spring of 2010, but wasn't sure about it. Then, a few days ago, I decided to see how it looked in Black and White. That delivered on the clearing-storm-drama I experienced as i stood there.

Rain exploded as it does in the desert - hard and quick. Then it was gone. I sat in my car hiding from the onslaught (cause I was crazy I guess. I mean, why wouldn't I be out ready for when it cleared?!). As the rain cleared, out popped a glorious rainbow so I jumped from the truck and ran to shoot it. However, I was too taken with one shot that wouldn't cooperate to see a masterpiece to my left. By the time I saw it, the rainbow had faded.

I still really like the drama of this shot though. Hope you do too.

Perfect for bw treatment, imo. And you're very right about the drama!
