It was a dark and cloudy night

(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-55mm @ 55mm. 5 sec @ f/2.8. ISO: 100). I saw a band of clouds hovering over Lodi one recent evening that caught my eye. Lit mostly from behind by a full moon, the clouds seem to almost glow. They also picked up a faint tint from the street lights […]
