Please Let It Rain by Nikki Trexel

This dried-up tree seemed to be stretching, yearning towards the water-laden heavens, desperate for a quenching rain shower.

This photo was taken in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, at Jockeys Ridge Sand Dunes. It’s only a few minutes from where the first flight took off at Wright Memorial Park. Jockeys Ridge is a state park and also the practice location of a hang-gliding school. We saw several gliders on the ground that day, but nobody gliding. The sand was burning-hot and biting on our feet as we explored.

    somehow those clouds make it seem more dry and inhospitable. As though they are almost mocking the tree…..

    This is stunning Nikki.. I am really taken by this… Wow! I love how you have divided this shot with so much emphasis on the sky withose wonderful clouds. The tones in this are just perfect too.. a fantastic contrast between the blue and orange and it is all processed so well. Fantastic and an instant favourite!
