Captured last March during a photoshoot with my two elder brothers Joe & Edwin.

It was quite a dull and 'wet' day and I particularly was enticed by the contrast of the drenched soil against the puddle and cloudy sky.

Location outskirts of Mellieha.

Some enhancements applied to the sky in PS to add punch & drama to the scene.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.
