I’m the kind of photographer that sees storm clouds and decides to go to the highest place around with my camera and an umbrella.
I had my ultra-wide Sigma 10-20mm lens on, and the sky called out its siren song to the artist in me. I didn’t see any lightning, and it wasn’t currently raining, so off I went.
Centennial Park has a hill that is likely the tallest thing around besides a building. We live in the flat prairie with thousands of acres of farm fields as far as the eye can see. This hill is a fun place for winter sledding and warm weather kite flying. It also has a nice view of the landscape in all directions. The clouds happened to be most interesting looking southwest as seen here.
I made it up and down the hill without any mishaps nor raindrops upon my head.
