Taken in Amboseli National Park, Kenya, Africa. I thought this monumental storm cloud mirrored the acacia tree that it loomed over. You can tell by the color of the grass, that the area had been waiting for the kiss of rain for a long time. This storm was just the beginning of the rainy season in southern Kenya.
