Johannesburg's summer storms are legendary. On the way back from the mountains, the skies were frighteningly dark gray, readying for the thunderstorms that followed. Except that there was one clear spot where the sun still shone, and the billowing clouds were Old Testament Day-of-Reckoning in quality.
I was idly taking shots out of the passenger side window at a speed of 120 km/hr (about 70 miles per hour), when I saw a line of transmission towers approaching. I took two fast photos of the towers from the side, then I waited until we passed the spot where the towers were lined up with the Old Testament clouds.
Click! Nailed it!
I don't think I could have lined them up as well if I was standing still.
