Storm Over Panama

I took this shot of a storm forming over the Panama Canal. Heavy rains provide the water to operate the locks. Hydrolectric power is used to move lock gates and the electric "mules" that tow ships through the locks. The ship was on Lake Gatun, waiting to enter a lock. The jungles are thick and dark. For scale, you might see a man in a row boat to the left.
