61 - Anticipation

Canon 5DmkII, 16-35mm at 16mm, iso200, 1/15sec at f/8.0, +CPL

This is the southern trailing edge of the cold front that just froze the northeast. It passed through south Florida right at sundown. It revealed its intentions around 3 in the afternoon and I knew I needed to be somewhere other than my backyard at sunset. What was unique and doubly beautiful was the strength of this front and how that created a line of high clouds that went from an apex in the north (top image) to a similar apex in the south (bottom image). The lines the clouds created ran all the way from north to south. I attempted to create images suitable for stitching into a panoramic, but colors, light and lines were changing so fast that I doubt I have anything that will work. In the N image out in the water stands a great blue heron, as the sky burst into color he seemed to stop fishing so he too could just enjoy the sunset skies...
