    Steve, this is an incredible scene captured incredibly well! Appears 2 cloud formations coming from separate directions have collided and are down pouring in distinctive chutes! Beautiful shading and perfect contrast with the sunlit clouds behind them! Perfect perspective—the grass line on the left and the telephone wires on the right are both interesting details that also lead the eye to the center of the storm funnel. WINNER, as the “favorites” prove!!

    The contrast in the clouds is really similar to that of the ground and they fight for attention - I'm not sure I'm able to grapple with it, but the moment is epic. Good capture!
