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.

Remarkable, Jack! Camera ever on the ready!!
Great photo. You got a lot of beauty of these ugly transmisión towers. Greetings.
Never heard about Old Testament clouds (never read the novel), but it's a good shot from a moving train!
i like this shot...looks so sci-fi!
Great one Jack!
Wow, I'm impressed. Nice shot!
This is an amazing photo that one would think the photographer spent a long time positioning oneself and waiting for the right conditions. To get this photo from a moving car is extraordinary.
An awesome capture, Jack!! But then I'm never surprised by your talent with the camera! You do have a great eye!! Enjoy! Stay out of storm's way!!
FA-BU-LOUS shot, Jack!
A result! Everything about this photo is perfect.
Those skies surely look ominous!
I love this shot, Jack! Perfect!!
Nice shot Jack!
You certainly did nail this shot Jack.. and from a moving car.. pretty darn good!
