While out shooting today in Saint Petersburg, a storm appeared over the horizon. Within 30 minutes it was right above me. I'm not one to take chances on lightning strikes, so I called it a day......only to have the skies clear up 2 hours later. As I scurried to my truck to safety, I noticed the locals were sitting out still fishing, and carrying on their conversations at the dock. After speaking with a few of them, they told me that this happens frequently and they were used to it. This panoramic image was made from about 6 separate images and there was no other image enhancement to this image. Those clouds are real and looked exactly like that!
