Moody Atlantic

Moody Atlantic

We're taking a brief break from tennis for a weather shot.  This was taken on Key Biscayne early in the evening as a storm was rolling in on the Atlantic Ocean.  The multiple shades of blue and grey were incredible.  I barely had enough time to take this photo before the skies opened up. Crandon Park, where the Miami Open is played, is about 1.5 miles away and as soon as the storm reached land the night matches were rained out.   But, the bad weather ended up working in my favor because more matches were squeezed in the next day (which was beautiful weather-wise), when I was roaming the tournament grounds. We'll return to the courts tomorrow with an incredible Spanish tennis player.  (If you're thinking Rafa…think again!)

Storms over water are always impressive!

Great image! Florida skies can get pretty spooky. We had something that looked just like this the other day - only over land.
