Storm Clouds Over Gettysburg

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Storm Clouds Over Gettysburg
Storm Clouds Over Gettysburg
From the archives:this photo was taken while driving through the battlegrounds in Gettysburg,Pennsylvania. The sun was shining behind me, but those clouds...and the threat of a storm...was the focus of attention.

Gettysburg is about 2 hours from where we live so we go there frequently. It is a beautiful place. Last Summer we went up in July for the reenactement. It was wonderful and highly recommendment. This is gorgeous. Excellent composition and colors, Jack.

Think I can hear thunder rumbling in the distance when I look at this, Jack - what an ominous, threatening sky. Perfect light to make those colors pop, tho, and they sure did! A beautiful rural capture of this historic location.

Ominous sky taken at that exciting time just before the storm, when the fleeting sunlight casts its best light. Way to take advantage of it, Jack.

Very well composed Jack with the fench in the foreground and the barn in the background. The "heavy" clouds gives the image character.
