Evening Clouds, Morning Rain

Last night, I was leaving my house for an evening walk when I turned around and saw this behind me. I used the pano feature on the iPhone 6s and took several shots until I got it just right. The default for 'pano' is set to shoot left to right but this one is panned from right to left. I find that I can capture a more balanced image if I face the lightest place first and pan to the darker side. It just so happened that the light was on my right this time. If you have never panned from right to left or don't know how to make the phone do that, it's easy, just tap your finger on the right side of the screen and the preview window switches sides. I recommend trying it both ways to see which looks best.

I did not get rained on like I feared when I left the house, but it did rain during the night. I don't have many windows in my house so I was surprised to see the sky when I came out to my car. I finally found a clear spot (no high line wires, houses, cars, poles, etc.) so I stopped alongside the road and took this shot. It was taken with the pano feature as well, from left to right.

If you look to the right you can see the rain coming down. I was just about to drive into it so I felt pretty lucky to have gotten this shot from the outside.

We don't get a lot of rain in our part of Oklahoma right now. Keith says it's just not our time but it will come back around. In the meantime, rain and storm clouds will continue to be a welcomed and somewhat rare sight to see. Anytime I can capture them I will be sharing.
