That was a nice start of a suspenseful story. You are a good student and your image has a very dramatic effect Kathy. I can almost hear the thunder and the lightning is blinding me! Very well done!

Excellent playing around with Doug help, this makes an amazing capture and love the B/W, it really looks very dramatic and dangerous to be out in the weather.

I always thought it was a dark and stormy night.
Good manipulation of the scene, Kathy. I think I'll stay indoors where it's relatively safe, depending on your relatives that is. A great dramatic scene and presentation.
