This is cloud drama, par excellance! Lovely shot, Jean.
Otto – this is brilliant! Thanks for sharing this really lovely image.
A comment from Paul…
“Today there is particular significance to this imagery, on the left, the two distinctive buttes are known as the “Bear’s Ears”, and are the namesake of our newest national monument, just proclaimed by president Obama yesterday. 1.3 million acres preserved for all humanity. This is a really big deal not only for those of us here in SE Utah, but for everyone, everywhere”.
Paul Martini, Bluff, Utah, USA.
As ever from you, Paul, a magnificent and faultless photo.
Picking up on your comment you and other CAS folk may like to see this news story contained in the BBC News website:-
It amplifies that which Paul has said. It is, excuse the pun, a monumental piece of preservation. Well deserved recognition of a fantastic landscape and Nature that dwells within it.
I love this picture Paul.
And …. Obama did well to leave not only this piece of nature protected against the short term interests of of destructive fossil industries, but also the Papahanaumokuakea (pronounced “Papa-ha-now-moh-koo-ah-kay-ah”) Marine National Monument . Thank him on behalf of mankind.
Thank you Laurence and Hans.
A faultless and outstanding piece of monochrome photography as ever from you, Paul.
This is Nature at her best! Beautiful lighting, composition with a good sense of heavy ponderousness of the storm to come.
Thanks for the sharing.
Thank you Laurence.
Indeed Paul, a supeb Image well composed and looks great in monochrome
Absolutely beautiful one that I would be proud of. Having spent a few years working in that area of the world I am lucky to have captured many great photos of ‘weather’
Fascinating picture for ornithologists as well – there is a 15 foot tall heron in front of the houses.
Hi David we keep him here as we are under the herons flight path
thanks for the comment made me smile
Really beautiful picture, Derry: colours, composition, objetcs are all perfect. Congrats!
Good shot, Roberto!
Such a beautiful picture and place, Ellie! <3
Waterfall in the sky. Gorgeous effect.
Beautiful front and, of course, beautiful composition, John.
Great gift to all of us, astraphilian people! Thanks!
Your photo, John, certainly packs a big punch in no small way! Dramatic and powerful. It is positively heaving with mood and brooding. Your careful composition accentuates the foreboding clouds upon the horizon. Tumult in the skies!
Cheers and thanks for this.
Ñam ñam, beautiful cauliflower from the highest orchard!
Superb Image well done
Splendid shot. Great capture!
This shot of yours, Jeanette, finds my liking very much. It is quietly lovely. Nice muted colours, good composition and I like the way the foreground is highlighted by low level light offsetting the sombre stormy clouds above.
Well said, Laurence. Nature is such an exquisite artist. We’re lucky, Jeanette, that you collaborated with her in this painting for us.
Yes indeed. Thank you very much.
