On my way home yesterday afternoon, the valley where I live was looking pretty stormy. I was in a hurry to get back and take my son to his first Christmas school play, but I had my camera in the car and the view was too tempting not to capture.

I use rough sheets (rough for texture) of white card for the backdrop and used available light, angling the scene for the shadow of the cross.
