Oh, our astonishing Texas skies!!!! James, you capture those Panhandle skies with incredible beauty and visual poetry!
This is a beautiful, well exposed photograph
Following up upon three well deserved comments from CAS members about your photo, here is my contribution, if I may.
I like much the portrayal of cloud glory above set in contrast to the glowering and growling threatening skies below. I like the welcome inclusion of the two seemingly fleeing huge juggernauts on the road which lend handsome scale to the cloud drama and edifice above.
Your photo presents us with an almost water reflection., but with the reflection in obverse Lovely picture!
This is cloud drama which I love leaving me wondering how things are going to develop. That is the magnetic draw of cloud viewing.
The second part of “The mist”, by Stephen King…. Coming up soon…
This a beautiful and most satisfying photograph! Thanks for the sharing of it with us.
And, from the my strict photographic point of view, you have got the horizon dead level. Good man! Many an otherwise good photo posted here on the CAS Gallery has been mortified badly by sloping horizons when it comes to photographing seascapes.
Marvellous. I wish I had been there!!!!
superb composition well done
An addendum to my first posting about this glorious photo.
I would highly recommend this photo to be included in the 2018 CAS Calendar.
great picture, Ioana

This photo reminds me of a very recently shown on various media of a bloke in Alberta, Canada, passively mowing his small back garden lawn seemingly unaware of the approaching and formidable tornadao approaching fast.
Well, it defies something! I think my priorities would be something rather different in the same circumstance! Sod the lawn mowing – it could all be totally destroyed in seconds making the bloke’s work rather puny and of no consequence!
I was quite disappointed to find the truth about the picture:- the guy’s wife, who took the photograph, explained the situation.
It seems that the tornado was, at the time of the photograph, approximately 2 miles away, visibly decreasing in strength, and moving quickly away from the mowing man.
As for the microburst in the photo above – I always wonder how “micro” it feels when you are under it.
Why is there a picture of a stranger in my Avatar space? That’s not me. Who’s that?
David, I later heard that this burst dropped 4 inches of rain. Thankfully it missed the city of Laramie … and us!
Thanks for your informative comment – it is appreciated.
That you say, the bloke’s wife took the photo and the tornado was some 2 miles away, but heck, tornado’s can easily outpace a car and can change direction with alarming speed . I have seen many a film footage from “Storm Chasers” and in one video the guys were being angrily chased by a tornado. The car was belting down a highway at some 100 mph – the guys in the car saying to the driver, “Drive faster, you f*********** idiot! This thing is upon us! Put your foot down, you sod!”
