Wow. Looks at first like a Wyeth--a Wyeth gone terribly wrong courtesy of the storm. What a dramatic image! Well done.

8-(. How it was possible to you to photograph and survive??? Well you are simply extreme! Here it is a shot! Is more tremendous. The small house though has remained the whole as a result?

I'm not sure you did anything to the image after taking it, but this shot is most impressive. That is one wild weather shot and the house looks like it's under attack. The contrast of lights and darks is wonderful. Faved this beauty.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Marvellous imagery Darryl. At first I thought that the low cloud was smoke from a steam engine :-) It has a moody evocative look that reminds me of Lucy’s work.

Wow..this is an outstanding image!! To me, its almost like the little house is daring that huge thundercloud to come mess with it!! You managed to capture a sort of peacefulness amongst the impending calamity (I didn't mean to sound all weird here!!), but very nicely done!! Right into the favs!
