    Just minutes ago, we came home from driving through the rain.

    We're watching the news when I look outside: the sunset looks epic.

    I dash outside, snap a quick shot from the side yard:


    The colors don't represent what I am seeing.

    I jump in the car, racing toward my favorite western-facing high spot. I get stuck at a traffic light. I'm watching the clouds close while I'm waiting at the light. I snap this through the car window:


    I finally get to the park and get my first exposure:


    It's okay, but . . .

    Finally, I get this panorama:


    And here's what you get if your select the shutter mode (set at 1/1000th) instead of the scenic panorama:


    It looks like I visited a lava flow!

    Cheers, Jock
