Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This came in at over 40 mph, blasting lightning, rain and high winds everywhere. It was a pretty intense and exciting five minute ride that ensued.

It was hard to keep shooting... you just want to stand, gape jawed in awestruck wonder when in the presence of a beast like this.

I need to get out to the central plains this spring... wish me luck.

    I like how the planes seem to be 'waiting' with their back turned to the onslaught. Very pensive moment, nice capture.
