I had to go back to the original EXIF data to see if I shot this in B&W or not. I didn't. It was really this grim that day.

Grim....as it can be but stunningly beautiful despite the grimness. Another wait that can be very good.

Did the mother ship ever make it through?

Fantastic.

Those clouds tell me "It's time to get off the beach!" Great capture! And did you notice the two pair of scowling eyes in those clouds?

Just amazing! It really does look like a B&W. I can see why you had to check back.

She looked up in the sky and pulled her shawl tighter to her. Soon the rain was coming but she had a bit further to walk...
