Finally managed to dust off the camera for its first real spin of 2013, to take advantage of the emerging spring leaves in a local meadow and the dramatic weather conditions yesterday brought.It was a constant mix of sunshine, followed by heavy downpour and lightning. By the time the clouds should have gone kaboom, it was raining heavily and I was pretty sure at this point that a great sunset was not about to happen but I stuck around just to make sure and boy, did it surprise me.A break in the clouds allowed just enough glorious light to peek through and touch the soaked landscape, bathing the whole scene in a soft, warm atmosphere.
