Hi all!

June, July and August, the tunderstorm months! They always provide great contrasts and situations and atmospheres like this one here show us how small we are compared to the nature's power and beauty.

This day I worked at home when I heard, still quite far away, the first claps of thunder. Suddenly, they were quite close and I went in front of my house. When I saw these colors, I ran back into the house, took my camera and ran out on the field, trembling of excitement. I just had 2 minutes to take the picture, then I was totally wet. When I arrived back home, looking more like a duck, I felt my feet aching and bleeding and realized that I had run barefoot on the freshly cut crop field...

I love taking pictures...

Hi Markus,
your bleeding and aching feet were well worth it...you have caught a fantastic moment in time! The light is incredible and can only suggest the imminent soaking that you recieved! Great composition and the panoramic format works very well. Very well done.

Hello Markus,
a very nice comoposition and xcellent picture.
as your username the picture is really a "heaven".

Wonderful. no words other.

It is a spiritual picture for sure. It actually bleeds with music and smell of fresh negative ions.


Hi Markus, this is a really nice image but it screaming out for a large panoramic, I feel you have lost the dramtic effect with a small post, but very nice work all the same, Cheers Rick

Hi Markus

Great capture. It reminds me of the 1st day I had my dSLR... I too was lucky enough to get something similar.

Great timing with good DOF and colours and excellent composition.

Hi Markus,
Colors, contrast, light, composition,the view and exposure handling are very good. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Markus,
I agree. WOW. What a stunning photo. The lighting against the almost black sky and the inclusion of the rainbow are superb. I wish to encounter such a moment myself. A superb composition where the single tree is a great focalpoint.

Great lanscape! The light is perfect! Thanks for your comment!

Hola Markus, primero gracias por tus comentarios a mi fotografía.
Tu toma excelente y muestra bien el ambiente de tormente con fuerte luz en el primer plano. Quizás algo subido el color. Ideal el arco iris (rainbow) para la composición.
Saludos y buen fin de semana:

J. Ignasi

hello Markus

this is a magnificient panoramic landscape,
the contrast of the dark sky against the yellow is working perfectly

I find two main points of interest : the tree and the rainbow



Markus - this is gorgeous. Perfect composition and the rainbow add focus and depth. Way cool.


Hi Markus,

This is one of the best landscape with rainbow i ever seen.The yellow and dark blue is make this picture unique.... most of your picture also...artist look

Lieber Markus,
Ich hab wieder mal deine "älteren" Bilder angeschaut und bemerkt, dass ich dieses kontrastreiche und vom Wetter geprägten Bild verpasst habe. Und diese Visionen hast du gerade vor der Haustür, nicht schlecht!
Wie immer sehr schön gestaltetes Foto.
Liebe Grüsse

Hi dear Markus ,
What a nice shot.
Fantastic moment in time.
Great composition.

Hello Markus!
Wow! Wow!
Wow! Wow! Wow!
Good luck!
