I do love this guy !!! Jim Richardson, you are awesome!!! How can you manage be in the right place on the right time? :)
It's photos like this that inspire me everyday. What a beautiful shot!
As a high school student with a passion for photography, there are no better examples than National Geographic!

You can almost feel the cool downdraft of the approaching storm - very expressive composition. Beautiful.
In the tradition of Jean-Francois Millet (The Haymaker's rest) and Vincent Van Gough (La sieste) this artwork captures an interlude in the day of ordinary farmworkers. In this case it is what is left un-shown that provides the impact. We know what is coming, they know what is coming - but Jim Richardson averts his lens from the power of nature, and instead the photographer has captured the foreboding that precedes the big show.
Like his artistic forebears, Richardson knows that it is the interlude that illustrates the big picture. I love it.
