Dark, dark skies and dazzling sunlight
Lens: DA*50-135mm Camera: K-5

Just walking the dog this morning in the local city park. Ominous rainclouds hanging almost stationary over the coastal dunes and the beach while just 3 miles inland the sun is shining with incredible brightness, lighting up the landscape like a searchlight. Talk about dynamic range! All shots straight raw conversions.

I absolutely love it when I'm out walking and the skies and sun are like this. Sometimes if I am in the woods a mist hovers four feet above the ground, rain drops sparkle and yet the sky is as dark as the sky in your photos. What a glow, and your images captured that perfectly. Looks like there was quite the wind too. Wonderful moody dramatic shots Mike!

That first one is super! I really like the bright foreground/dark sky look. Where was it taken?
