    It's August on the International Dateline. :)

    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

    *SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

    *Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.


    Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.

    Calm Before the Storm
    July 2017

    Last night at Corsewall Lighthouse, SW Scotland I witnessed what is one of the most menacing weather fronts I've ever seen heading towards me on the coast.
    It was almost dark when the photo due to the cloud blocking out what little post-sunset afterglow light remained. Although I was head to toe in waterproofs, I thankfully made it back to the car before the rain hit. What a sight this was rolling in, truly awe inspiring.

    Fuji X-T2 with XF 16-55mm f2.8 using LEE Filters 0.9 Soft grad.

    Wait, what, August?

    Something old...

    This was actually midday, not anywhere near sunset. The orange tint is due to the overwhelming smoke from forest fires.

    A 70 second long exposure of the city skyline. I found it interesting that the clouds on the left barely moved , while those on the right moved a moderate amount.
