Check out that sky! The shadow of the tree looks as its ready to engulf the barn. Very nice capture Heather.

Thank you folks! We had amazing skies on January 10th and 11th. I found out that this is called a Mackerel Sky! The definition is -
n. Chiefly Northeastern U.S.
A sky covered with many small cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds, resembling the markings found on a mackerel. Also called buttermilk sky.

You can read about them more here as I found them quite interesting!

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

I saw sky like this too Heather but I didn't have a powerful shadow like yours to make an extraordinary scene.

Wonderful work Heather.

Congratulations on your worthy Gold award.

Winning The Gold, The Photo of the Day and also the “Grand Prize” is such an honor after days of taking photographs and doing your best to present them in a professional way, you realize that it is well worth it, and to graciously share them with us.
Thank you and Congratulations. Merna
