Ricky Ebel, Wildfire (October theme: Weather)

One of those places you just cannot get out of your head. The raw beauty of this place is truly addictive. We had just arrived at Milford Sound and moments later they closed the only road leading in and out of the Sounds due to the impending weather and potential avalanche risks. What came was a seriously intense storm and this was what I captured before the weather turned bad. It will forever be remembered as one incredible experience. This shot was taken at Milford Sounds in New Zealand with my Nikon D810 using my 16-35mm f4G VR lens on my Gitzo GT3542LS legs and Really Right Stuff BH55 ballhead.
