very interesting main cloud and the timing with the sun is awesome and the silhouetted trees finish off the great image

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Clifford.

Heather Mellon

I love how the trees stand out against the threatening sky here. There is real beauty in a stark scene like this when you have a stormy sunset sky to back it up with. Great shot, Debra!

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Heather.

Yves Langlois

You sure have an artistic reflex to capture that scene. Impressive God's eye where I can see the sun and its light comming through. Like also the opposing shadow world with perfect dead trees in the bottom and the uplifting world of the light behind the cloud (top). Great shot.

Debra Plett

Oh thank you very much Yves. I love your view of this image, I had the same thoughts.


I lick the shadose of bernt trees in fron of the hot sun going down

Debra Plett

Thank you Jeff. This particular landscape really drew me in. The clouds were moving as fast as the sun was setting I didn’t have much time to get the shot.

Harold Fleming

Good eye, Debra! A very nice scene all around! I love the trees against the cloud and the contrasting colours along with the light and shadows.

Debra Plett

Thank you very much Harold. I was taking pictures in the park of the sunset however none of them had the mood that this one has. Just happened to look sideways at the right time. Not expecting to see this scene at all on my way home.

I was driving along Hwy 206 just south of Birds Hill Park and noticed the setting sun poking through this very threatening cloud. The trees in this area have been dead for years helping to make this a very moody sunset.
