Emporia, Kansas – From my driveway I watch clouds roll over the city again. The darkening sky is pierced with lightning. A neighbor family returns home as it begins to sprinkle. The mother watches with me for a moment. There was, she says, a great view of the sky as they drove on the Prairie Street overpass, where her daughter looked into the west and said “It’s the hair of God”.
It is a dramatic sky, more spring-like and welcome than was our weekend blizzard. I drive to an empty lot and watch as the forms intensify, and dark tendrils of rain spread against the rose-colored horizon.
This is truly amazing work, the way the ground seems to burn, that against the dark dark clouds makes a fantastic mood! Great work!
You capture so much energy!
There is great power and awesomeness in those clouds. Wonderful photo.
Gorgeous capture… love the colors and drama. I really like the title too. 🙂
OH DAVE! this is gorgeous!
Totally out of the box composition that works very well. Really conveys the pwoer of the storm clouds. Great job.
This is an extremely powerful and stunning photograph. It's definitely first class.
