How many wooden-heads out there are going to know Quercus is a cloud formation, I wonder.

I've been having so much fun seeing your comments mirroring Stephens and then your realization once you notice. :-))

A beautiful landscape, and I love the light. The sky is fantastic with those big dramatic clouds. The framing with the tree is very good. An excellent photo.
Have a good day.

Stunning vista and light ! Is this after everything blew over?

25 Jan 2013 3:11am

@Bettina: Can't remember. It seems we have had nothing but grey skies for quite a while now. So it could be blowing in rather than out :)
