Stormy Weather (re–edit)

This is a re–edit of a previous photograph that I posted last year. I didn’t think I had managed to get the exposure and contrast the way I wanted and the new image shows the drama more clearly. I think it’s also closer to what I had seen. The heavens opening and the sun breaking through creating an amazing contract between the dark clouds and their sunlit edges.

I’ve also given it a closer crop, giving a greater sense of scale with the man walking along the beach close to the edge of the frame with the other two thirds dominated by the clouds.
