"Here, I think the dark storm clouds help to create quite a moody image. When I took this shot I could see the approaching heavy rain in the distance, so I was pleased I just had enough time to capture the scene before conditions deteriorated too much. I always take my smart phone with me on photographic trips and find it very useful. On this occasion I watched the rain approaching on my favourite rain radar web site ( and could see the rain was set to last for a long time."
