The B&W is a great choice for the dramatic sky - it does look spooky! Cheers, Gudrun

Thanks for your Likes YS and comments Nick and Gudrun! It was a really cool storm with lots of lightning and awesome looking clouds. It looked good in color but so much better in black & white!

Oh, wow. This works very nice in B&W ... very powerful!

Thanks for your comments Kevin and Jed - living in San Diego I don't get to see many cool t-storms like this and it was great to be able to get a good shot of it.

You have very nice BW photographs. :-)

Thank you. Have a nice day.

Thanks so much dalimil - coming from a film background I've always had a love of b&w. Somethings - like this storm for example - just look better in b&w in my opinion.

Thank you for your visit!
