It's mid of May and we eventually have some "April like" weather: 15°C, some rain every few minutes and lots of great looking clouds to shoot! Took this one straight from my balcony just before rain started falling again... Note the bird appearing as a dark speckle in the center almost at the image's bottom. I thought of removing it, but decided to keep it ...

Post processing is rather straight forward: I've used the channel mixer (70%R, 20%G, 10%B) for creating an artifical "value channel" that darkens the sky while keeping clouds very bright (See the blog for some notes on this technique). Slight contrast enhancements and a hint of saturation... that's it.
