I shot this photo a few weeks ago near Maynooth when the sky was particularly dramatic looking. On the one hand you have lovely fluffy white clouds and on the other you had huge and threatening looking black clouds. I took quite a few shots that day which you can see in my gallery but this is my favourite one. It shows the interface between the dark and the light clouds and I really like the way the curve in the road is mirrored by the curve in the dark cloud.
