...another during the precurser winds of Ophelia, taken along the ledge of an ancient fort here...wind, rich colors, sky influenced this as did the energy in the clouds...a whimsical capture...
..I promise to get away from the storm images after the storm passes...I do :)

I like your creativity on this shot, the two toned robe and the looming clounds in the BG makes this a unique composition

OMG this is so wild and emotional Robert!! The flow of the dress and the dancing of the feet and that rich red of the dress. I can hear the castanets.
So glad you won't be stopping the storms Stormie!!

Robert,

This whimsical, rich dance captures such beauty and brings lightness to my heart. If I could be so mundane in the midst of such awe inspiring photography, would you mind if I asked you how you set up this shot and in what settings you had the camera? Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your colorful world.
