On the way home from our annual holiday, I looked back at the storm behind us! We of course had to stop, so I could leap out the car on the national road, squat down and get this pic!

Wow look at those clouds!! Great capture Robyn. #510985

Thanks Tamera - we'd just driven through the storm, and it was just something else, so getting ahead of it, to capture its 'anger' was great. #3223615

Don't know why, but this photo really evokes an emotional response. Aside from the great capture of the clouds, there is a nice symmetry to the composition. Good job for an on-the-fly picture, Robyn! #3237012

Thanks Dan - what a lovely response! #3237089

Oh my! I would have run for shelter! I love that this is a natural shot and how cool everything is layered, with the cables almost perpendicular to the road. Great shot! #3245787

Thanks Alexia - I revisted this file the other day, and was presently surprised - I think I'd forgotten I'd shot it!! :) #3245937

Hi, this is an excellent shot and well framed. I liked the interplay of the various lines, how they draw the eye into the distance to the dark clouds. #4600185

Thanks Daniel - I was scared witless driving through the storm, and when we came through it, and looked back, I thought the whole scene was pretty impressive :) THanks for taking the time to comment. #4600306
