I couldn't help noticing this as it went over my head. I had to scramble for my rain gear but afterwards there was some time to catch it traveling over the highlands.

I like it but would almost prefer it in color. But that's just me

I understand. Because the sun was still behind the clouds in the area I was standing the surroundings were kind of dull. Sure I tried to brighten it up and give the saturation slider a solid boost, but I wasn't satisfied with it. In black and white it seems better to me. The texture of the clouds and rain have more impact. But I value your opinion!
Here is the color version.

I like it (both versions but at heart I'm a color guy.)

It seems to be a matter of personal taste judging from you reactions. I am glad you all like the photo!
