Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Excellent cloudscape, I really don't see or find enough storms around here, cannot remember the last time we had any thunder.

11 Jun 2012 8:44am

@Curly: Yeah, I'm afraid Britain's not exactly known for its thunderstorms. That's why my wife came over to this country to chase storms. :-)) Thanks, Curly!

Laurette from Fourways - Johannesburg, South Africa

Absolutely a amazing and beautiful cloudscape. Excellent clarity in this beautiful shot Jason. Well done !

Magnificent image here, jason...you really and wonderfully emphasised the clouds above and the framing is fantastic - I just love this composition. When these clouds are seen, we know "something's happening here, but it aint exactly clear" for sure :-) Awesome and VERY dramatic image with a touch of comfort in the river there ..beautiful!

@Denny Jump Photo: Thank you very much, Denny! I was happy to get this decent of a shot considering I was just pointing the camera out the window while driving across the Arkansas River. I was fortunate that it worked out and am glad you like it. :-) Oh, and no, nothing special yet planned for the summer. Karen keeps talking about going on another cruise though. LOL Hope you're doing well and that Barbara enjoying herself as she visits the rest of the family. :-)

There must be rain down there in the distance, this cloud means business, very
beautiful view !~

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Incredible cloud formations and textures captured in this shot! The surrounding terrain helps establish the scale of their great size.

Beautiful view and impressive storm clouds !!! Great shot ...

franz from Baden, Austria

terrific mood captured here! very clever crop with the emphasis on these threatening clouds ...

11 Jun 2012 5:51pm

@franz: Thanks, Franz! The crop was essential to remove the offending bridge I was driving over at the time from the image, but I do like how the sky's emphasized this way. It's a typical storm chaser image - 90% sky and 10% ground. :-))

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, Wales., United Kingdom

Reminds me of when I was a kid,sitting in my bedroom window,watching the lightning skittering (Is there such a word) across wave tops

11 Jun 2012 6:18pm

@Jeff: I think when you're a kid (or adult even) you can make up any word you want to describe lightning. :-))
