Storms and sunsets

August 07, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

We had another great storm here yesterday, I got lucky with a couple of shots but didn't have time to shoot much as the lightning was pretty serious and being out in it was a little daft!

Just after this shot the rain started and came down in a torrent, bouncing off the road as I headed back to somewhere safer! I stopped in at Storforsen Hotel and stood under one of their picnic areas and set up the camera, the rain was pretty strong but the sky looked fantastic so I got a couple of shots.

As the evening rolled on it was clear that it would be a good sunset, after the storm the air was heavy with moisture as low cloud formed in the valley, loads of fog raising from the trees too so I grabbed the camera again. I was able to catch the sun setting in a number of places as I travelled up the hill beside Storforsen, low down at the river the light was fantastic.

As I moved up the road I captured the sun as it dipped behind the forest.

The sky was really nice at this point as the fog was getting heavier, standing in this area of cleared forest was great as all the new growth trees added a good foreground. 

I decided to head further up the hill and see if i could capture the sun for a second time so jumped back in the car.

Just in time I managed to capture it as it dipped below the horizon. After it had gone the fog increased and the air was really damp, managed a few more shots.

Then I went home!
