230/365 – Hail…in August!?!

We’ve been having some odd weather this year….

I could hear the rumble to thunder off in the distance, I happened to glance outside just in time to see the first few bits of hail come down and I thought to myself “I think the cats outside!!” I ran downstairs and opened the back door and I’ve never seen my cat run so fast across the back yard and in through the door. It was good he did that because it came down in buckets!

  1. The first composition is really eye-catching. Wonderful effect with the perspective and catching the falling hail in action. The muted colour and the bokeh create a painterly quality . Well done. I was wondering what the second shot would look like in B & W : the contrasting sharp detail in the foreground and the soft focus of the the background may become more dramatic.
