[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I want to deviate from my elephant trunk series and show you this beautiful cloud. Yesterday was one of those sweltering hot days and we all felt parched and drained from the heat when suddenly there was a wind and the sky grew dark where a storm was brewing. I was about to get into my car after visiting a friend when I looked up and saw this beautiful bright cloud surrounded by all the dark storm clouds with the moon feighnt in the distance. I immediately grabbed my camera and took a few shots. This cloud reminds me of us humans and I actually saw a lesson in it. Sometimes life tends to surround us with all the bad things that's going on in this beautiful world of ours. The earth quakes, Tsunamis, famine, sickness, financial difficulties, bad economical situation, all these things surround us but we have to stand strong and reach out to the world with a smile and a shining face. Face tomorrow again and thank God for His grace.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did when I looked at it.
Comments are welcome.

Hi natley,
a great moment with this half moon beside this big cloud. I don't know if you have cropped your pic. It is very grainy and the grey shadows in the cloud look strange.

Hi Natley
What a lovely photo!
The white cloud behind the dark one makes the photo. And you even got the moon as a bonus!
I hope you got some rain!
Keep well

Hello Natley, great light and interesting because you've taken with this image. Bravo. Hello Paolo
