As we were leaving Monument Valley, there was a hellacious thunderstorm building up to the north; this airplane was about to take off anyway. We didn't stick around to find out how that went.

Now I don't think there was any danger to the plane, they are quite sturdy these Cessna Caravans.
Great composition that evokes the feeling of waste emptyness of the midwest to me. A true mood of adventure lies in the air. The brooding storm has brought out some amazing colors here.
have a good sunday

Certainly an intimidating sky, though the faint rainbow makes it a bit happier. I like the look of the plane against the amazing backdrop here - great colors and depth.

An interesting note and an interesting word too - I've never, ever heard of "hellacious" before, but I see that it's in my computer's dictionary! Here you are:
hellacious [h*l'leISEs] adjective (U.S., slang)
1 remarkable; horrifying
2 wonderful; excellent
[C20: from HELL + -acious as in AUDACIOUS]
We learn something new every day!
A very fine photograph with the most delicious lighting - bright light on the foreground and the aeroplane, rather mystical light on the distant mountain and a rather foreboding light in the sky where we see a very broad rainbow, probably a portent of bad weather to come. Hellacious weather, probably!
Very well seen and taken with interesting light, gorgeous colours and excellent details and sharpness.
P.S. Did you fly out in this aeroplane?

This is just beautiful. Wonderful colors, good framing, nice composition, good DOF. To top it off, there's an airplane (or two) in the photo. I love pictures of all kinds of vehicles. TFS.
