Wow! This is a spectacular sky shot. I like what looks like an explosion of darkness coming out of a cloud in the middle of the photo. Great shot!

This is awesome indeed, Max!! And I know what you mean -- they can be gone in an instant and that's why it's always great to be able to capture them with your camera! Have a great weekend!!

Wow, amazing beauty!!!

Would you consider removing word verification...it was suggested to me several weeks ago and it is still safe and secure and is so much easier for people desiring to leave comments.

You often see something like this and moments later its gone. Not even enough time to pull the car over and grab the camera

You are right, this is a gem of a photo!!! I love then the sun rays go up to the sky from behind the clouds.
