Driving into Vermont on a rainy day, the skies finally stopped raining but the clouds were everywhere as the sun tried to burn them away. This one White cloud was trying so hard to be seen...:o)
The mountains and landscape of Vermont is so beautiful and the clouds just added to it. At this time I was driving on the I89 interstate heading towards Stowe. Thanks for visiting my gallery and thanks for your comments!
Donna :o)

Hi Donna,

quite an emotive shot, sometimes nature does all the work for us doesn't it?! Although the composition is first rate and you have controlled the light well to get the contrast needed to make this cloud stick out.

Hi Donna,
Fantastic capture. Wow.......the sky looks beautiful with varying hues and colours adding to the ramanticism.
The composition and framing is superb.

Original disparo y buena vista para estar atenta al cielo y ver esa nube rebelde. Muy bonitos los tonos de las distintas nubes.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Donna,
Beautiful land/sky scape photo.
Very nice use of lighting.
Great job.

Hi Donna
I hope you enjoyed your time away.
I like your photo very much. Your composition is spot on. I've come to the conclusion that you must live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, or I am blind to what goes on around me. Either way. I love your rebelious cloud.
TFS and regards.

What a MAGNIFICIENT capture.!!!
Am going to have, HAVE to fav. it.
Great "control" of the lights.
Excellent clarity.
Best regards,

That is a very interesting shot. I'm glad you were able to capture it. I so prefer a cloudy sky to one that is completely clear. There is no end to the possible variations and drama . Nicely done. I like the silhouetted base to the photo.

Bella imagen Donna con gran sentido estético incluido.
Me agradan los tonos captados, con esa iluminación tan especial sobre la nube.
Apropiado encuadre y presentación general.
Gracias y un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Beautiful image Donna with included great aesthetic sense.
I like captured tones, with that so special illumination on the cloud.
Appropriate framing and general presentation.
Thank you and a cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Donna,

How was your trip to your homeland (Vermont)? Hope you had a good time? Just imagine that you were just a couple of hours from my home town Montreal.
As you noted with this picture, I guess that you are somewhere between Burlington and Waterbury? Ha! love that GreenMountain Coffee!
Seriously, your picture is interesting. A bit dark but that cloud does pop out from that cloudy sky. Nice contrast with the blue-gray clouds and that yellow-orange one. Also Like the profile of the surrounding mountains too.

PC :)

Belle photo,quelle ciel,vriment menaçant,heureusement,le petit nuage gris claire résiste. Amitiés Thomas

Hello Donna,
Surely it´s a rebel cloud! Very nice and magic moment captured. I like the composition in dark tones broken by the tiny cloud.
