    Oooohhhh…. scary storm Mieke!!! What a beauty…. how wet did you get, I imagine not long after this photo??
    Brilliant photography! :)

  • Thanks, Vicki. It hit us about four minutes later and it was incredible! We were instantly surrounded by a wall of water =D Two of us sprinted and kinda made it back to the car, wet but not drenched… the woman in this shot wasn’t so lucky :S

    This moment captures so many stories from the mood of the sky to the brilliance of water and earth to the innocence of a photographer to the hope of lingering touches of sun… where to begin??? A picture really is worth a thousand words! Lovely job Mieke.

  • What a lovely comment, Sylvia! Thank you!! I’m glad it conveys the entire story :)

    Fantastic Mieke, well composed and that dramatic sky is stunning.
  • I’m glad you like my compositions, Terry :) And I agree – ‘dramatic’ is certainly the word for that sky!!

    Wonderful image Mieke, great clouds!

  • Thanks, Phillip! The lighting conditions were a bit challenging, but I seem to have captured the ‘gist’ of the scene! :)
