Hello everybody!

Yesterday I tried to take some pictures of switzerland. Everything looked so near. But i needed to long to drive home and the great view changed to a dark storm . I had two choices: go home or risk to get wet and take shots of the clouds - so I choosed the second option and got wet .
It was too bright and my old 58mm ND-filters don't fit onto the lens and it was impossible for me to get long exposures for lightings. A few times I tried to shoot lightings by pressing the shutter when I see a lighting, but this does not work.

Here you can see two results: The panorama is stitched from 7 images @ 18mm in Autopano Pro and the boat is a tonemapped RAW (Photomatix). If you like to see a larger version of the panorama, you can click this link:

Nice, I really like how the flags in the first one really emphasize the weather.
