Crimson Clouds

Photograph by Terence West, National Geographic Your Shot

Red storm clouds hang heavy over Spring Creek, Queensland, Australia. Photographer Terence West had been chasing the storm across the Southern Downs when he captured this image of the back of the storm just as the sun was going down. “It made me feel that nature was at peace after the anger of the storm,” he wrote.

It's photos like these that remind us of the many beautiful wonders in the universe. Much that we take for granted.

Mother  nature at her breathtaking best, and yet she can repeat her performance's time and time again, whenever she wants. Its  for us to be there at the right time to capture,the magnificent colors.shapes,and form's,and sounds that she is able to produce to scare or even to delight us. Bravo Terence on your great shot, it's something else.  j.e.s........
