Passing Storm

Okemo @Sunset 0006_HDR Our town July 4th fireworks were scheduled for last Friday night but a thunderstorm came through at 7P. Ultimately the fireworks were delayed till the next night. In Ludlow when people ask where you live the answer involves reference to either the river (and lakes) or one of the hills surrounding the town - creatively named East, West, North, South. I have friends who live on South Hill with a good view of West Hill (fireworks location and Okemo Mountain). They had kindly agreed to let me shoot the fireworks from their deck. However, the storm intervened. But Mother Nature had her own display planned and thus this image looking north across the river valley to North Hill and beyond. Nikon D300 with Nikkor [email protected], 5 shot HDR, f11, ISO 400, 2.5 s +/- 2ev.

Dave, what a lovely and unusual orange sunset. Folklore has taught us that "a red sky at night is a sailor's delight" ... when I saw this what came to mind was, "an orange sky at night is a rare and wondrous sight."
