[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A cloud is a visible mass of condensed droplets or ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of the Earth or another planetary body. The branch of meteorology that studies clouds is nephology.

On Earth, the condensing substance is water vapor, which forms small droplets of water (typically 0.01 mm of ice crystals) that, when surrounded with billions of other droplets or crystals, are visible as clouds. Clouds reflect all visible wavelengths of light equally and are usually white, but they can appear grey or even black if they are so thick or dense that sunlight cannot pass through.

Hello Dorota,
outstanding landscape, the colors and cloudformation are just amazing. The reflection are just superb. Wonderful composition.

Well done, Dorota. Fiercely dramatic sky and great reflections. The colors are so warm that the shot would seem tropical without the ice.

Boy...fire and ice! Nice capture. Lovely light reflection.

Whoa, Dorota. A gorgeous sunset. The colors and textures are just wonderful. I like the reflection and the birds scattered all over the smooth wet sand. Great job, and TFS. ; )

I really like the moody large skyscape over the shiny wet sand sprinkled with black birds- very striking!

Hi Dorota,
This is a very nice land/icescape. I like the sun reflecting on the ice and on the clouds that are beautiful of shape.
The composition with the diagonal lines of the clouds is great. Nice touch are the birds.
