Stowe Vermont - After the Storm Photo
The Stowe, VT area had some severe thunderstorms last Sunday night - July 29th, 2012. They hosted some strong winds, very dark and fast moving clouds, lighting hitting so close that you are scared to look to see if anything was hit, and thunder so loud you feel the house shake.
Actually, I like thunderstorms - unless they are in the middle of the night. They usually mean the end of a heat wave. What I find so incredible though is "after" the thunderstorms. The clouds, the smells, the various shades of color in the sky after they pass through, and the variances in the light.
After the storms, I went out and took some photos. It was beautiful out. Most of my photos look great in color, but there was one that was just asking to be black and white. I just saw an ActiveRain group for black and white photographers. I really liked what I saw and joined the group. This is my first black and white photo on ActiveRain. I hope you photographers like it! Also, I think it's a nice photo of a field in Stowe Hollow, Stowe, Vermont.
