Scary Clouds

Running For Cover To Get The Shot

By: Demetrios Varoumas + Save to a List

A few months ago at Valley Forge National Park, the weather changed from clear blue skies to storms rushing in within 30 minutes of being there. The wind gusts were up to 45 MPH! It started to pour and the lightning began to light the sky. Running about a mile back from where I was to take cover in a historic log cabins on the trail. Getting drenched from the pouring rain, but luckily it broke for a few minutes to grab this shot. Then it poured again looking for cover near the now closed visitor center. Fun day though!  Y'all have a great Monday! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’™πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ŠπŸ‚πŸ
