Sunset Rainstorm, Lincolnshire, UK

Driving through Lincolnshire I found myself under a heavy rainstorm. Somewhat unusual meteorological conditions prevailed that day with much clearer skies to the west. I was very luckier to catch this moment just a quarter of an hour before sunset, producing the dramatic effect of a rainstorm backlit with raking light.

Technique: You can tell the intensity of the rain by the fact that this was shot at 1/250 of a second, a relatively fast shutter speed for capturing movement. Post production focused on manipulation of exposure and contrast to reveal the rain pattern.
