Cushnie hail

The image of hail in an earlier blog prompted me to look again at an image of hail from a few years ago. 
I was driving through Cushnie in Aberdeenshire in April 2012 when I spotted a hail storm. I pulled in to the side of the road and managed to get about six shots on my Canon 500D (Rebel T1i) before the hail storm fizzled out. (Hail storms really do fizzle.)  

Original conversion using Adobe Camera Raw. 

I reworked the original capture using Nik Silver Efex - cropping off part of the foreground, boosting contrast and working to bring out more detail and drama in the hail. I reckon it's an improvement. It's certainly different.
