Slow-moving rain front approaching from the west. The sharp edge of this low pressure system coming up over the western horizon moved slowly across Germany. When I drove home hours later, it still stood roughly in the same position, though the radar images on the evening TV weather forecast showed that its clouds constantly streamed from north to south along this edge.

I chose this panorama because I found the contrast between the clear blue sky and the weirdly sharp edge of the clouds intriguing.
