Re: No way that's real...

Thanks!

It was very cool to see the sky like that, about 20 minutes later it rained hard and I was in the middle of the thunderstorm.

Beautiful

Very neat combination of colors. I really like it. I personally think it should be photo of the week.

I appreciate your good vote and comments, I was in the middle of running down the mountain because of the approaching storm, looked up and saw this, glad I stopped to take this shot.

Unreal...

...sky. I was sure it was photoshop'ed. Looks like an abstract oil painting!

Re: Unreal...

Thanks!

The pictures' contrast was adjusted a little, providing a more "real" (I think) look to the picture, thanks for the vote and comments, they are appreciated!

Re: Wow

Thanks Ammon!

It was quite the storm, although I took this just outside Salt Lake Valley, those clouds are what was over the valley! It was probably just as intense of a storm where I was. I appreciate your good vote and comment!
