Aggressive and dynamic! Love this type of photo. Full of drama and clouds really holding sway in an impressive way.

As ever. a lovely photograph from you. You certainly spoil us with your great shots.
It has been ages since I witnessed “bolt” or “dagger” lightning like this. When we get storms in, maybe I should say, correctly above, we get sheet lightning.
This is certainly a dramatic and moody shot well accomplished.
Well done, Sir!
Quite atmospheric, Pau. I like the overall composition with the long lead in of the road and overhead a dramatic cloudscape.
Paul, you have done it again! Another stunning photograph. Thank you.
I echo Ginnie’s comment 100%. Brilliant shot, Paul.
I really love the mirror reflection of the stars in the water. That’s imagination for you, also, an eye that really sees!
Such an amazing shot, Paul!
Such an interesting composition of a rough, rocky foreground and shallow water pools in the foreground and a late, yellow sunset background colours competing against an amazingly clear, late-winter starry sky in Colorado, USA. Definitely a place where one that you just could sit and look at for hours and reflect back in time to appreciate our vast, amazing universe and also wonder what will happen in the future as well! No light pollution around to ruin the view there from any major cities! The stars are reflected in the perfectly-still waters of the pool like jewels. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Thank you Ginnie, Laurence and Rebecca.
Another remarkable photo!! This took my breath away and would make a stunning poster. Thanks Paul for all your outstanding photo abilities.
Top shot, Paul, and beautifully stunning.
Marvellous composition, exposure and great capture! As ever, assured from your photographic submissions, your photos never fail to delight and enthral. Great work! I like the ethereal nature of the overall vista. Enchanting!
Thank you Laurence.
Further detail from Paul..
Here in Bluff, we have what’s become an annual tradition, local sculptor Joe Pachak builds a sculpture of cottonwood tree
branches and other natural materials, and like most of Joe’s sculptures, they’re patterned after images from ancient rock
This year, the sculpture is a coyote. The sculptures are then burned down on the night of the winter solstice. The Navajos
and Utes come and drum and chant. It’s all somewhat of a pagan ritual… Joe finished the sculpture yesterday and
I spent several hours shooting it last night. As if some bizarre omen, a lunar halo appeared above it and lasted about 45 minutes. Very strange indeed.
To provide some scale, the coyote is about 18 feet tall, and maybe 30 feet long, nose-to-tail.

Fantastic surrealistic picture Paul. Perfectly fit to illustrate some mysterious tale by Edgar Allen Poe. Wow!
Thank you Hans.
