Hola Claude,
hermosa perspectiva, gran ambiente y pov,
detalles y color agradables...

Bonjour Claude,

Ce nuage menaçant apporte en fait l'eau indispensable à la vie... ce qui va nous permettre de faire de belles photos de la nature, comme celle-ci :-)

Bravo !

Hello Claude,
Very well timed scene from a nice POV. I like the movement of the various grasses in the foreground and the dramatic cloud. The tones of colour are fabulous! Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla
P soon

If there were a transitional mood shot, this is it. The contrasting weather pattern/results. Almost a contradiction in therms however it happens many times every day in some part of the world. Most do not think about it but you caught it on digital. Nicely done my Quebec friend.

hello calude,
it will rain for sure, i liked the beautiful colours and the contrast very much, well composed shot, nice pov,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hola Claude.
Una sensacional imagen con estas nubes impresionantes que rompen sobre la tierra.
Impactante fotografía.
Saludos, JL.

Bonjour Claude,
Quelque chose d'inhabituelle de ta part, mais qui me plaît bien. Il semble que ta route pour aller trvailler, est bien belle! Et ce rideau de pluie est tout simplement sublime.

Hello Claude,
A fine august rain-cloud study portrayed with a good perspective, lighting and colours.
I can really feel the atmosphere and a desire to seek shelter before it starts!
Well done and TFS!

I love the moment you captured here Claude. I particularly like it when there is sun shining in one part of a scene and black clouds and rain in another. I like the division of the frame with the heavy clouds. Sharpness and exposure are good. The inclusion of the attractive plants in the immediate foreground is really nice. On my monitor the colors seem a bit unnatural... the clouds a bit blue and the greens a bit over saturated??? I tried a workshop.

Hi Claude.
Thank you for visiting and kind words and, of course, for chance to see your so attractive photo collection.
I like this picture a lot. Subject is very impressive and you managed to reflect the state of weather with perfect skill. Rich colours, damped up light, impressive clods and shadows, perfect reproduction of the traces of rain are create a strong esthetic impression. Bravo. Well done and TFS.

Bonjour Claude, quelle photo fantastique! J'ai manqué plusieurs de tes photos j'ai été prise toute la fin de semaine. Et puis voilà ce magnifique paysage. Quel contraste entre la lumière des nuages et celle des champs. Superbe, les couleurs sont magnifiques. Merci beaucoup!

Hello Claude,
fantastic picture of heavy rain clowds approaching. Fascinating colour contrast of dark blue clouds against yellow and green meadows in marvellously subdued shades. Strongly atmospheric, very well reported. Wonderful. Thank you my friend. With best regards,
