Taken just moments ago after hearing the tornado sirens in my county. The rain exploded and the sky opened up, dumping more rain that I had seen in a long time. This “photo” is my view from my balcony, where you see the abundance of rain has formed a river. I used a painterly effect on the photo in BeFunky Premium, added coloring in Gimp, and finished this off in Picnik. I love how this looks like a painting.

    My first thought: He PAINTED this one! EXCELLENT work, Scott!!

  • I can paint my face, my body, my nails, my apartment walls (white), the town red, but if you give me a paintbrush, I will draw stick figures. LOL
    Thanks Ron!!! I took a few photos of this surge, but the falling rain was so heavy, the photos look like they were taken in a fog, so I improvised. LOL
