The sky over Loch Alsh

A story behind: That night we were back from just another adventurous day on the Isle of Skye. The storm was beginning to arrive from the Atlantic ocean. The dull sky suddenly turned wild. I stopped the car. I had no time to put a tripod. Handheld, with the high ISO and short exposure the fast cloud motion got freeze. Some of the warmth from the dying sun was even captured and the effect of the polarizing filter was just enough as to not lose the reflections of the light which I felt was a necessary component of this image.
