We were at the cottage last week and there were some isolated thunderstorms in the area. I noticed this thunderhead moving across the area that was producing a fair bit of lightning however it never got that close, although friends of mine that were camping in Algonquin National Park said it was a tad scary at times, but I sat on the beach at the cottage with the 5D and 50mm 1.4 on the tripod with cable release in one hand and a beer in the other and just enjoyed it.

Nice image I like the stormy sky contrasting with the peaceful still water

I find this beautiful mike. Lovely comp and subtle colours.
If this were mine I think I'd try to milk just a bit more detail from the darker blues - i believe that would make this sing even louder.

Thanks guys for the comments and I really appreciate the feedback Marko. I will definitely give it a try.

Very nice light in those clouds complete with the lighting, well worth the effort of setting up the tripod and cable release...

Beautiful scene captured Mike. Love the soft blues with the vibrant contrasting white light. Shows the power within.
