"Now on the hills I hear the thunder mutter...
Nearer and nearer rolls the thunder-clap,
You can hear the quick heart of the tempest beat...
Look! look! that livid flash!
And instantly follows the rattling thunder,
As if some cloud-crag, split asunder,
Fell, splintering with a ruinous crash,
On the Earth, which crouches in silence under;
And now a solid gray wall of rain
Shuts off the landscape, mile by mile...."
~James Russell Lowell, "Summer Storm," 1839.

Not knowing your season I would be prepared gladly to accept summer storm from you. Even when I know that you will face winter any day now, I faved this image without even thinking ...! :)
This shows the amount and quality of trust I have in our overseas agent:)
This image is lovely, magical and ominous and the poem [although I am most apparently and allegedly poetry-deaf:)] complements it most beautifully. Thanks, dear SALE.

Magnificent clear and threatening shot. In full the clouds over the trees looks like it could develop into a twister if there's a rotation in it.

Such a dramatic sky, LE! I like how the tiny path directs the viewer's gaze through the scene and into the storm. Fantastico!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

If you stare at an orange juice container because it says, "CONCENTRATE" might be a redneck.

Oh girl, that is plumb scary. Do you have tornado's where you are? Sure looks like one is ready to pop out of there. Great capture. Awesome desktop. KEEP-PAH

In my neck of the woods, we'd be taking cover if we saw that cloud formation! I live in the part of Oklahoma called "Tornado Alley." That's a very dramatic image you captured. Nicely done!

It is a most dramatic sky and cloud formation, Lyn. Did you get caught in the "solid gray wall of rain?"
