Extraordinary concurrence of circumstances
Challenge has finished
Once and a while a picture is taken to hold more than one striking event or object at the same time. Like e.g. a dog jumping into a city fountain basin, while (at the same time in an other part of the picture) a woman’s shopping bag accidentally bursts open. Or, a low flying traffic liner fills the air together with the sight of a hot air balloon, again together with a full moon at daytime. All in one picture. This circumstances are rare, but than again there is this dpreview challenge host to invite the world to collect these special pictures. Pictures from which you can say: “this is truly the perfect example of an… extraordinary concurrence of circumstances”.

A long-awaited electrical storm at sunset. This was a shot where I drove for 40 minutes in the late afternoon after seeing a thunderstorm on the weather radar to this spot where I knew farmers were burning off the dry grass. The outhouse just added something to the photo. It certainly has led to many other tiles being suggested!
