Clearing Storm #52

Nothing says Wichita like Exploration Place and the Arkansas River.  A brief and welcome rain shower had just passed, and the clouds were breaking up as sunset approached.  The part of the puzzle usually missing, which is me actually being there with camera and tripod ready, was miraculously present on this occasion and much feverish HDR bracketing mayhem ensued.   The river is extremely low at the moment, so sandbars normally under water are now visible.   I’m not sure if a full river would have improved this image or not.

By the way, would it be a mistake to admit that Clearing Storm #1 through #51 do not actually exist?

    Fantastic shot, full river or not. This is a great “right place-right time” photo where timing is everything.
    As for your question, admit only when asked. I think it’s fine to label any number you want to photos as long as you don’t use the same number more than once – that would be a BIG mistake.

  3. Thank you Ken and Patti. I waited around quite awhile to get this so it was extra rewarding to get the payoff.
