Free Photo of the Day 5/29/14

Nikon D40, 1/250 sec; f/8; ISO 400, 18mm. Taken 9/26/10.

I’m taking a hiatus from the floral portraits today. Here is a view of Pachaug State Forest from the summit of Mt. Misery. An approaching thunderstorm made for a very gloomy and overcast scene. (I have added some cyan to the original shot and made some gamma corrections to make the cloud cover stand out.) I mostly like the feelings associated with this photo, and hope as you look at it you too feel the sudden drop in barometric pressure, hear the distant rolling thunder, and enjoy the stillness as the forest environment goes silent in anticipation of the storm’s arrival.
