Bobby you not even close. Give up this kind of splendor for a picture of a grubby old guy. NO NO NO my friend. You have the best with the lightning, the desert, the cars. I would gladly trade you to get a picture like this phenomenal beauty for a man on a horse. Sounds like you study this quite extensively and your camera control brings us unbelievable beauty my friend. Keep em coming. #10266660

Just discovered this while gallery-cruising, Bobby. Those multiple lightning bolts are beautiful! It looks like that large horizontal cloud is playing with puppets, dancing their strings up and down.
P.S. Any finalists we should know about? #10298485
