2012, Day 61 - Mountain flare

I took this picture last month on my way to a long weekend in Central Oregon.  The mountain in the distance is Mount Jefferson and I made my friends stop along the side of the road for a time lapse.  Unfortunately shortly after starting the intervals we realized that we would need to make good time in order to collect the keys to our rental before the office closed so I only have a few seconds worth of shots.

Normally flare is a rather distracting element but because of the movement of the clouds I decided that some flare would be acceptable in the time lapse because it would come and go making it a neat element.  I like that you can see the anger in the clouds, their violent energy and the rays of light from the sun trying to break through the coming storm.
