We were beside the River Tamar at Polson on the Cornwall and Devon border dodging the heavy showers when this shot was taken.

I think bright sunshine under black clouds bring out the most fabulous colours. Apart from the terrific light of this picture it is also very well composed with the two major trees in the fg being balanced by the trees and the white building on top of the hill.
Kind regards and a happy 2014.

A fantastic mix of sun and clouds producing a brilliant effect and there is no doubt that rain is coming. The patch of green field lit by the sun balance the dark clouds beautifully. The white house in the BG stands out so well and is acting as a good focal point. Superb composition with optimum clarity, colors and magical light. Thanks for sharing.
Wish you a Happy New Year!

gioorno dopo giorno, le tue foto mi aiutano a comprendere la bellezza di un paesaggio che trae la sua bellezza dall'incontro degli elementi della natura, spesso contrastanrti tra loro, ma che tu sAI dominare con estrema perizia e racchiudere nello spazio ristretto di una bella composizione, sempre con colori di superba bellezza-
Che dire: le tue foto sono dei quadri, quelli che solo un bravo pittore saprebbe realizzare per ricordare l'attimo che suscita forte emozioni, quelle che tu riesci a suscitare in ogni tua foto.
Con l'occasione ti faccio gli auguri di un felice anno nuvo

I like this kind of picture when a dark grey sky cohabitates with a scene in full sunlight
A superb result
Best wishes for 2014

A great capture, the dark sky really enhances the lovely green field and trees.
Happy New Year

Hello Les -The atmosphere here is fabulous, you have really managed to capture the feeling of an impending storm. The light has given the shot super contrast and I love the acid yellow in the field closest to the river which is picked up again on the trees. I hope all is well with you and Gladys, I see that Devon is once again flooded. TFS this, it's a super shot. Warm regards Rosemary

We have a lot of rain these last weeks in Britanny too, a lot of floddings in fields and in some cities. Very nice shot anyway, you caught a very beautiful light and the contrast with the dark sky makes a great atmosphere.

What surprises me about this photograph is not the dramatic cloud - which we've seen all too frequently these last couple of weeks - but the patch of sunlight you've managed to find! And of course the combination is super: the green/yellows much brighter than the sky. Hope you survived the latest onslaught. My boat is still on its mooring in the middle of Portsmouth Harbour I'm relieved to say! Happy New Year.

Very peaceful place with splendid colors. I like the composition with big tree in the foreground that gave same reflection on the water. With stormy sky the fields look marvelous.
I wish you happy New Year!

very impressive photo: the light is magnificent. This is the best combination: well lit foreground and dark dramatic sky in the back. It has as well a fantastic clarity and sharpness. Great composition too with the river and lovely trees and a pleasant rural landscape behind.
