[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It had been a weekend of difficult weather. But on the drive home, the sun suddenly peaked out from under the clouds just before it set. I snapped the photo through the open car window as we drove up the highway.
Hope you like it.

So lovely to see a scene like this after the storm has passed. Lovely colours Silke, and the ray looks like a sword piercing the darkness. Well seen,

Hello Silke,
It seems that we had kind of a same day... Don't you think it's weird for our country? Here, it is not finished yet, my cats just don't understand what it is happening outside; funny :-)

This is a beautiful capture of this after storm with very nice lightning, POV, composition and great control of exposure. If I might say though, there is just a little noise in the sky... Well done and take care,

Hi Silke,
Sunrays coming out from behind the dark clouds and penetrating the tree canopy are very nice. Well captured. A bit noisy on dark cloud at upper part of the picture.
Nice shot.

Un bello y artístico contraluz Silke muy bien retratado.
Me gusta el efecto del sol justo entre las nubes y los árboles con interesantes reflejos y colores.
Muy buena captura, gracias por compartirla.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

A beautiful and artistic backlighting Silke very well depicted.
I like the effect of the sun exactly between the clouds and the trees with interesting reflections and colors.
Very good capture, thank you for sharing.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hello Silke,
Interesting play of light, giving additional drama to the sky!
Good details in the cloud formations, and the silhouetted trees contrast well!
Pablo -

Silke, THIS < Storm's End > is what we are praying for now in th eAtlantic Region! Brrrrrrrrrr beastly storm whipping thru!

Interesting "lightning bolt" thru the sun. Great threatening colours.

The light, both as the bright blast and the diffused light interacting with the darks make this an interesting shot.

Tfs, J.
