You be careful out there my friend with them storms. Be safe.
This one had to go to my favorites as the second my eyes laid on it, I was so taken in by the combination of danger and beauty. What a dramatic, from another world look you have here my friend. Love the cactus and the deadwood, such a hostile place. I sure hope the judges take this all the way to the gold. It darn well deserves it my friend.
Enjoy the weekend, take care. #1474799

GREAT CAPTURE of Mother Nature looking P^##@&
