Photographer: JJ Johnson

Photo taken: March 24, 2018, on Alki Beach

Photographer’s description: “Took this with my Fuji X-T10. We were having a typical spring day with storm clouds and sun. Drove out to Alki to see if we could capture some good light and got this on the beach.”

Critique: “This stunning stormy spring scene is highlighted by the photographer’s hard work to make the photo. Getting a lower vantage to create a silhouette on the dock coupled with a wide angle lens to show the contrasting dark clouds really makes this photo.”
