POST CHALLENGE

Well, what can I say...

I'm truly happy.
I'd never expect to win the FS when I entered this picture, so I'm glad over glad.
Thank you for all the nice comments and votes, really.

I burned another goal for 2017!
Now it gets interesting...

Thank you again!

Cheers

-------------

I shot this from my house balcony.

There was a storm on the horizon (actually it lasted more than 4 hours!) so I shot a TimeLapse video, just to have some "stormy" footage.

The low-pressure area passed through the whole frame!

If anyone of you wants to see the whole phenomenon, here's a link to the brief TimeLapse video I shot and posted on my Facebook's TimeLine.

(if you have troubles viewing the video from the link, just PM me and I'll upload someplace else :) )

I was unsure about sending this for the FS but then I thouhght... "What do I have to loose?!" :)
