Well it was a rainy kinda day so I thought I would spend an afternoon in Photoshop. I used two pics ( one of the sky and one of a horse sculpture in front of the Musee D'Orsay in Paris) Once all the cutting and pasting was done, I played with the effects until I had something dramatic.

    You certainly spent your rainy day wisely, Michelle. This turned out fabulously and the sky really is dramatic. I like the blue tones also, adds to the drama.
