Stormy Nebraska Dawn
... and my wife wonders why it always takes me two hours longer than her to get any place ....
Often times when I take the 600 mile journey home to South Dakota to see my parents I leave early in the morning to get as much road as possible under the wheels before my little girls wake up .. (nothing like being in a car with two little girls for hours on end to reprogram all the neurons in your brain) .. thought this was worth the risk of waking them for a road side stop .

I like this a lot!The silhouettes, the reflex on the small lake, the sky and those fantastic colours. The composition is great John!

Haunting look at this prairie pond. The distant trees give sacle to note the vastness of this landscape.

Great colors and lines. I like the purple sunset, and the clouds are just amazing and the little pond gives it a bit more. Well framed!

A photo with a great-full mysterious atmosphere.
The sky is very impressive, the compo with the reflection and the figurs from trees and earth give a very good effect.
Have a nice time.

The brilliant slice of light & it's reflections, while the rest of the pic. is dark. A very beautiful image of nature!

It's a terrific and a little terrible this cloudy sky. I love the intensity of the darkness in this shot. Only the glow of the sun and its reflection let us to see something, the rest of the image is darkness, menacing darkness. It's really beautiful the world, even when it shows am "unsociable" face! Thanks,

You caught spectacular pink sun beams through clouds. Silhouettes of trees, reflection on lake surface and especially not yet illuminated dark clouds at foreground of sky is spectacular. Your photo is an excellent works. Congratulations.

Nice composition, the lake at the foreground is very well captured with excellent detail as usual. TFS :-)
