Uploaded: January 28, 2010 05:51:40


From the archives:this photo was taken while driving through the battlegrounds in Gettysburg,Pennsylvania. The sun was shining behind me, but those clouds...and the threat of a storm...was the focus of attention.

Think I can hear thunder rumbling in the distance when I look at this, Jack - what an ominous, threatening sky. Perfect light to make those colors pop, tho, and they sure did! A beautiful rural capture of this historic location. #8337233
