Captured whilst on a photoshoot with my brother Joe (EPZ user name: KingArthur) at the Mizieb valley area; around the limits of Mellieha.

A lovely set of clouds engulfed the surrounding sky to enhance the beauty of this solitary hunter's hide. location. Needless to say, the prevailing (late afternoon) light added an extra dimension to the vista.

Shot late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Cheers,
Bert Wink

Great shot Bert. That really heavy cloud looks a little forbidding but it does seem to reflected light back onto the fields. Very nice indeed.
