[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Exceptional moment of drama: a storm in preparation under a blazing sun. Fortunately, that day, the storms would not occur and the photographer was unhurt.

This photograph is an illustration of the meeting in an instant two supposedly mutually exclusive extremes, rain or shine (for some Chinese philosophy, the Ying and Yang).

And as the peasants say, bad weather is the weather that does not change.

Hi Philippe. The colours in this picture made me open it up and have a look. This is the type of tree pictures i like with a storm not far away. Which give wonderful rich colours in the sky and trees. I like thee green and gold. A nice composton . well taken TF.

Hello Philippe! Nice light and bright, very nice colours, good saturation, very good contrast and sharpness. Well done!

Philippe...splendid moment and scene, the heavy sky as background, exceptional light and result in colors,a great dramatic photo!

Rebonjour Philippe,
Une lumière vraiment exceptionnelle sur ces arbres, particulièrement le peuplier(?) à l'arrière. J'aime beaucoup ces moments qui précèdent la tempête, la rencontre de deux extrêmes, comme tu l'écris. Excellente netteté et une image, comme toujours bien cadrée.
Bon après-midi

Hello Philippe
We see many times this kind of images, but probably never we dare to stay and take a picture. The combination of sun (reflected in the trees) and the stormy darck bg in perfect in my oppinion. Congratuletions!
Kind regards,
