@Curly: Thanks. Like most P&Ss, the S90 is subject to noise in low light situations.

Don from spokane, United States

The threatening storm and the glow on the beach make this an impressive and very appealing image. The solitary person looks lonesome. Nice one.

"Dutch" from Chicagoland, United States

Yes we do! I love storms provided I am not in danger. I love the rumble of thunder and the lightshow that lightning creates. My son, chip off the 'ol.. for the longest time he wanted to be a stormchaser. This is wonderful. You can see the storm out there.. and yet on the beach there is enough light and calm.
