[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This photo is slightly different than my 2nd post on TN. My first attempt turned out very small, I thought I would add one more from the big storm of June 2005. I just love the colours of the different layers of clouds. The sun was setting which gave the sky a deep blue colour.

2005 was a year of flooding for our small town. In the month of June our area had over 600 mm of rain and made the top Weather Story of the year with Environment Canada.

Hand Held....after the lightening moved away.

Hi Janice,
Great clouds in all senses! Nice colours too.
Well done and TFS

Hi Janice,
I saw the photo and knew immediately it was yours. Its a kind of signature photo for you. I still find this storm really impressive and you've captured it so beautifully. Those colors are just amazing.

Great shot Janice,
Stunning colours, well composed.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

I know at once that I'd seen this storm before. It is worth a second look! The colors and shapes are just simple beautiful. Well done.

Hi Janice,
Very beautiful clouds and color. Dramatic sky shot. Amazing how the light colors them with so made shades and tones.

Great shot Janice! I love the drama that can be found in stormclouds.

Some times these clouds give us such wonderful displays. And naturally, in stormy weather they are at their best. I love the colours and shapes Janice. Well done,

Hello Janice,
Sorry no time,critique later..:)

Bonjour Janice,
I found that it was hard to make a nice image even with nice clouds, but you succeeded very well here. The compo and lighting are perfect. Congratulations!

Interesting texture, shapes and colours enhanced by the quality of the sunset light. Well framed, too. TFS.

Very impressive pic! Colors are superb. I imagine power of this cloud...
Nice capture.

Your neighbour ... you know who????
