Thak you everyone. Yes it is amazing that the ordinary person can take such fine pictures that was only within the reach of professionals with very expensive equipent not that long ago. Thanks to the advancement of technology. What will be available in another 10 or 15 years?

Thanks Jean. Timing is everything. I had a few minutes to observe, company had just left, and thought might as well take advantage of the sunny day, knowing that there was a huge prom but I was too late. Then behold what do I spot? Quick get the camera and the computer out and the clouds were moving in. Had time for one shot only. This was it. Just lucky.
