God Vs. man
They put out their heavy guns; man with his M252 81mm Mortar and God with is fearsfull power …
Somehow I don't think man has a chance here … even if he is part of the IDF

Such drama and a great composition. This really conveys to me the power of nature and places mankind in the very small context he/she holds - apart from the serious impact on the environment perhaps symbolized by the rude form of the tire tracks in the foreground. A bit of visual poetry here.

Beautiful picture.... excellent moment of Lightning and well captured. beautiful composition.

The combination of the man-made trails on the colorful earth with the flashes of lighting in the sky create a really dramatic scene. The even balance between the two with a level half-and-half horizon placing works well here, when generally perhaps it does not.

Hi Assi. Incredible capture and excellently presented. The colours are very dramatic - it certainly looks impressive.
I prefer to think of this as man in the wrong place at the wrong time. To me, this is nature unless, of course, you believe that God is anti-IDF for some reason....!?
Excellent work. Best wishes, Paul.

Hi Assi, this is a fabolous composition. Not only the time was perfect but your POV gives the image a great perspectieve and depth. Very surreal the colours and the scene.

This is fantastic!! I love the lightning bolt! The paths through the dirt lead us into this scene very nicely. TFS

This is a magnificent catch! Lots of lightnings here lately, but this one is great.
I like the yellow color in the clouds and couldn't stop thinking that this lightning is very close and dangerous in this open wilderness..

a spetacular photography! The composition with the tire tracks leading to the car and the people in the middleground, against the fantastic and allmighty weather in the background. The PP treatment gave additional dramatic element. Overall an extremely well crafted shot.

Magnifique ambiance que vous avez su capturer !
Les couleurs à dominance jaune font bien ressortir le gris de l'orage

Brilliant moment that you have caught, reading your profile I deal because you took it, you take the whole moment your chamber raises, I am charmed with the composition of few colors that the photo has, I you add to favorites
Bergenphotos (2906) 2011-08-08 10:26
Oh! This one is perfect! I just have to say you got the perfect POV, with the tracks in front, and the lightning hit exactly on the best possible place for your picture. Speechless!

Hi Assi !
A great frame, like a "golden fish in a tank".
The action is superb, colours hard to imagine even in dreams, very good pov, excellent sharpness. And yes, the battle of any army activity against God's love will end up in ultimate defeat !
