It has rained every day in Campinas, Brazil since I arrived here earlier this week. Clear morning skies give way to towering cumulus clouds as the heat and humidity build, releasing their torrents by mid afternoon. Today brought a small respite from this pattern, with the day staying sunny and only scattered thunder showers moving across the landscape by early evening. This view from my hotel room shows one such shower directly over the city of Campinas.

Dramatic, and beautiful shot.
Thank you, Tom. I haven’t had much practice with cloud shots (actually I think this might be my first one). It was even more impressive in real life!
Wonderful photo! Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to paint that?
Thanks, Sally. It would have to be a really talented artist to get all the subtle shades of white to gray in the clouds. I like that the city is visible as well – it adds a sense of scale to show its enormity.
