Everybody Seems So Happy Today In The Sunshine Day

I took this photo about an hour before yesterdays massive thunderstorm cloud photo. I was just at the start of my journey, heading to Woodbury for my errands. I could see the sun shining partly through the the clouds and what a site it was. The problem was, there were houses, trees and many other obstructions in the way for a clean shot of the clouds. The clouds were moving fast and my chance to get a great shot that I was seeing was only available for a short time. I was watching the sun and the clouds movement and it looked like I was going to get the sun behind the sprout of clouds in the photo, but I had to move fast. I knew up ahead was a corn field that may give me a chance at a great photo opportunity. I hit the gas and sped on my way to the open area and just made it in time as the cloud/sun pattern changed very rapidly as the approaching storm rolled around the Twin Cities. If you want to see the clouds about an hour later, scroll down to yesterday's photo.

Nice photograph. I like this one so much better than totally red skies or totally yellow skies. I just like the vivid detail in this one.

I am back from my self-imposed vacation.
