A Storm was photographed along the Scioto River, northwest of Columbus.

”You'll be found, your nickels, dimes and Indian-heads fused by electroplating. Abe Lincolns melted into Miss Columbias, eagles plucked raw on the backs of quarters, all run to quicksilver in your jeans. More! Any boy hit by lightning, lift his lid and there on his eyeball, pretty as the Lord's Prayer on a pin, find the last scene the boy ever saw! A box-Brownie photo, by God, of that fire climbing down the sky to blow you like a penny whistle, suck your soul back up along the bright stair!”

Ray Bradbury, “Something Wicked This Way Comes”

Photo and narrative are fused perfectly, Shads.
It would make a good contest entry.

Because you've put this one in the 'manipulation' gallery, I suppose that the lightning was added John, else it would have been very dangerous to be there in these severe weather conditions. Manip or nor, the result is great anyhow.

perfect posting again!

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Congrats on the contest, John.
A spectacular looking scene with great colours and post work. The vignetting could be reduced and perhaps lighten the shadows to bring out more details in the image.
