Around here, S.W Michigan, twisters are not super common, but they're still a yearly thing; and when we get them they're not very large, but large enough to do a crap load of damage. My town and a few neighboring ones got hit pretty bad this last spring (I even found the Big Boy sign 2 blocks from the restaraunt! Mine! :happybounce: )

:hug: Well, it's true, I love your artwork. And I don't have many followers, but hopefully they'll reblog and then your art will spread. ^^ I figured if I can share pictures with people, why shouldn't I share pictures I truly love?

Ah shucks, you're making me blush. If you knew me well enough, you'd know that when I get obsessed with anything, a song, a movie, a book, etc. I can't help but share it with everyone I know, whether they really want to listen to me or not. I hope you do start making some money off your work though. If I had the money I'd love to buy prints of your stuff. Especially that picture of the gazebo and rainbow.

This is EXCELLENT!!!
Hey, I'm an independent electroacoustic musician / music producer. Would you mind if I used this image as album artwork for my piece to be released in early 2012?
You will have complete credit for the photography, and I'll even make a little watermark in the corner of the image (once cropped to album artwork size) crediting you as the photographer/cover artist.

Please consider this!!!
Thanks,
Jacob, from the musical project: Malus Caelestis

Wow. Now that, that is pretty intimidating indeed.

If I were you, I probably would have started running for the hills, screaming obnoxiously and flailing my arms back and forth XD

But good for you for staying put! The clouds look really, really epic. I especially love the dark, dark tone to the big mass of them right in front, and how they kind of funnel down then ease off on both sides. It almost looks like a tornado is about to form -- I like the lighting on the left though. A nice dusty white in the mix of dark gray-blue.

The darkness on the right makes for a great background for the trees and their green leaves to pop out on.
I also like the look of the trees on the horizon itself, and how there are a few little things here and there that can be picked out from the background.
Like the little pond, and the neat glimpse of its texture. The way the green grass loooks and how short it is, and how the sky's lighting or lack thereof is brought onto it as well. There looks like there's some kind of little bridge or dock or something in the back too.

Certainly makes for a good day in the park!!
I can only imagine how this would look if you managed to take a photo here in the midst of a thunderstorm -- especially with a bolt of lightning snaking down right in the middle of this shot ^^ That could also make for a neat photo-manipulation, come to think of it.

Great job!
