Sort of perfectly captures the "topic" (Hidden Gem) doesn't it? I like this image very much, the sense of flowing out of the womb of the sky.

Beautiful fantasy like cloud scene. Kingdom in the clouds or something like that.
03/17/2009 01:14:02 AM
Not sure why (maybe its a lack of sleep on my part), but this shot reminded me of the show Highway to Heaven.
03/17/2009 01:10:58 AM
Lovely shot.
03/16/2009 10:00:38 PM

03/16/2009 01:53:29 PM

This is great way in the back the one cloud looks like a horse head to me. WOW!! Can you see it?
03/15/2009 05:22:05 PM
Lovely tones. Nice shot.
03/15/2009 04:31:57 PM
Good shot. Unique POV.
03/15/2009 12:06:42 PM
this is amazing!

03/15/2009 12:05:40 PM
great drama, tighter crop on the left would have added a lot IMO
03/15/2009 10:36:16 AM
Wonderful capture, great colors and POV.
03/15/2009 03:11:56 AM
dramatic cloudscape, a tighter crop would have been more impactful, 6

Surreal. I have not seen many like this.

Wonderful "hopeful" storm capture.
03/14/2009 05:30:32 PM
That's a dramatic looking sky.
03/14/2009 08:48:50 AM
Now this is a bit different, brings to mind some of the sci-fi novels I read as a youth.
03/13/2009 09:15:29 PM
Wonderful cloudscape. Light and color and forms are superb.
03/13/2009 05:17:35 PM
Woa! This is totally amazing!
03/13/2009 04:47:29 PM
Very dramatic capture! 8
03/13/2009 02:21:52 PM
I can feel the turbulance. Glad I'm on the ground.
03/13/2009 02:20:12 PM
Stunning colors, but I wish this were slightly sharper. That top cloud looks like it's covering something amazing...
03/13/2009 01:31:52 PM
Did you take this from a plane? How did you get it so clear through the windows? I feel like we're looking down from Olympus.
03/13/2009 12:29:16 PM
Damn that is fantastic!
03/13/2009 11:18:09 AM
lovely colors
03/13/2009 09:28:14 AM
Reminds me of something from the bible.. or the Sistine Chapel.
03/13/2009 08:58:52 AM
one of the good sky images
03/13/2009 07:54:14 AM
I love seeing sunrises and sets from the air, they can be amazing, and you've captured one here.
03/13/2009 03:38:05 AM
Beautiful sky well captured.
03/13/2009 03:01:55 AM
Is this taken from a plane? Nice texture in the clouds
03/13/2009 01:46:17 AM
Beautiful, into faves.
03/12/2009 03:55:00 PM
Great colors, very nice picture!
03/12/2009 01:25:49 PM
Looks like the grand canyon from above.
03/12/2009 12:48:01 PM
Heavenly looking. Very dramatic. Good detail and colors.
03/12/2009 12:07:42 PM
great colors but a little motion blur is distracting, as it that over exposed bit on top left of the picture
03/12/2009 11:30:14 AM
Very stormy and moody. Not much to hold my interest however.
03/12/2009 04:51:02 AM
I find this a bit difficult to make out. The details I can see are lovely though.
03/11/2009 10:49:42 PM
Zeus called his children together, and expressed his displeasure at their wayward ways. But their childish antics made him smile, and he could not be as cross with them as he felt was for their own good.
03/11/2009 06:50:39 PM
The colors on the clouds are awesome, but the black is a little overwhelming.
03/11/2009 05:32:28 PM
great shadows on the clouds
03/11/2009 04:47:09 PM
03/11/2009 03:50:09 PM
Very pretty. Almost wish there was more "sunset" to the edges instead of the dark clouds - but that is obviously something you couldn't contrl!
03/11/2009 01:08:56 PM
I've looked at clouds from both sides now.....
03/11/2009 11:06:04 AM
Very 'Lord of the Rings'. I love it!
03/11/2009 10:19:55 AM
heavenly image...beautiful!
03/11/2009 04:01:31 AM
A very nice depiction of the amazing world that forms in the clouds - it's something that fascinates me when I fly and you get days like this. Lots of good layers going on here and good natural framing.
03/11/2009 03:55:14 AM
Like a landscape in the sky, very nice
03/11/2009 01:27:16 AM
Amazing. How did you capture this?
03/11/2009 12:50:52 AM
this is an excellent shot, quite stormy and brooding...
