…of a field in Hadley.  The support structure for the tobacco shading is in place, though I’m not sure what’s been planted here.

Still, the skies are dramatic, so I pull over and take this shot:

Thanks to Elliot, with perhaps 1-1/2 degrees of tilt, a hand-held 3-stop reverse ND grad by Singh-Ray, and a foreground boost from Photoshop’s camera raw fill-light function.

Stormy Weather. May 15, 2012

We’re having a run of “inclement weather” here in the Northeast, which is to say, we’re getting some much needed rain.

I’m not complaining, even if I have to time my garden activities to coincide with the breaks.  No rain, no garden, no business for the rafting companies which constitute a significant part of the tax base in my little town.  And most disturbingly, lower reservoirs, drier swamps and wetlands and reduced levels in our water wells.

Anyway, life is good when it rains.  And during the breaks, I find views of tumultuous skies over a bucolic countryside:

Late-day cumulobimbos  wading across the sky yesterday afternoon.

More to come, if the forecast can be believed.  🙂
