7.7.09 - "Darkness on the Edge of Town"

I was driving down a small lane just outside town this afternoon when I had to stop and try to capture this view. The sky looks so threatening, but so far has produced little rain, and small shafts of light were illuminating the wheat. I'm really happy how this has turned out as a photo, and it is also very symbolic of the next few weeks for me. There are a lot of storms for me to ride out, wish me luck guys :)

Apologies yet again for my rather patchy commenting recently. Most of my spare time is being spent trying to earn money in these difficult days, but I still try to look in and give a few thumbs up.

Late Edit; this is pretty much straight out of camera, just an unsharp mask applied and some specks on the sensor cloned out.
