Gathering a Storm by WayneBenedet Gathering a Storm by WayneBenedet
The remains of an old homestead south of Holland, Manitoba.

The sky was just amazing this day, and I wanted to expand it around the cabin so that it would played a dominant role in this image. Using a 24mm lens created the wide angle necessary to gather the sky, and allowed me to come quite close to the cabin in order to retain its size perspective. It also created some distortion n the cabin walls that in this image I find quite pleasing. As a result, it was not corrected.

Most people wish for blue skies and sunny days. I love cloudy days like that.

we have had a lot of grey this spring, which is unusual for this area. But today was sunny.
