Wish I lived somewhere as beautiful as that. Despite appearances to the contrary, the rain was bucketing down when this photo was taken - at 100% the rain is visible. Unfortunately it doesn't really show at this size.

Reminds me so much of the typical 60's and 70's Suburbia in SA especially the wire garden chairs :)
Some days I wish we could go back to sitting outside without guard dogs, armed response and razor wire...
Calling it "stormy" hurt it. No angry clouds or torrential rain to speak of.
I like the shot and the conversion Gina, albeit it a tad dark, which no doubt was the intention.
Is this home? Beautiful house, setting and garden.

Something about the treelines against the sky doesn't look quite right. Nice composition.
