    Oooooooh. Absolutely love this one.

  2. MarkedMan says:

    @Flat Earth Luddite: I second that

  3. al Ameda says:

    Very beautiful composition. It’s almost abstract.
    Shades of blue and gray, and black.
    You have a great eye (or two).

    I gotta be honest Steven, you’ve been doing a lot of cloud photos of late and to me? It is just a variation on a theme. No matter how good a photo it is, it’s just another cloud to me.

    Please understand, that I understand how sometimes one just sees things differently than others. I have an attraction to derelict buildings and where I see lost dreams or past glories, others see just another pile of bricks.

  5. @Flat Earth Luddite: @MarkedMan: @al Ameda: Thanks!

    @OzarkHillbilly: I have to admit, I do love me some clouds–especially storm clouds. There have been a number of very dramatic summer thunderstorms roll through and given the wide-open vistas near my home, I love trying to capture the drama.
