Nobody will believe me, so I took a picture :)

I didn't think anyone would believe what I saw today, in fact, I hardly believed what I was seeing myself! Thought I'd share this with my fellow forum members - this was taken this afternoon in my work car park in Edinburgh.

Re: Nobody will believe me, so I took a picture :)

I wanted to go to Lithgow (west of the Blue Mountains) to the IronFest event, but it's pouring with rain here & flooded roads around Sydney, so no blue sky here at the moment. I met someone wanting to go to the Hawkesbury Agriculture Show (in Wndsor, east of the Blue Mountains), but that's going to be a wash out.

Well, enjoy your blue skies.

Usually in Scotland there's a perfect grey card above your head, so I believe you've got the colour balance wrong!

PS you must have used a fast shutter speed to stop the clouds!

lol Stephen - it is indeed a perfect grey card usually!
I liked the low lying and clearly contrasting clouds and thought the tall lighting pole in the car park would work well to give a sense of scale.
Shutter speed 1/1000, F7.1, ISO200 and my first shared photo taken on my new OMD

Personally I think the cloud to the right look like the lion rampant!
