Golden Cloud

By ringyneck  
This was a case of after the storm....the calm. 7hrs after the thunder storm in my 2 previous shots,came this immense cloud lit by a sunset that failed to show.It was in the eastern sky "over the back" from our house,and I just had to get it recorded.But as there are not any decent features around here I was stuck with the cereals.
I wish there was something better to do it justice but beggars cant be choosers.

Please see LARGE + F 11

Hand held @ f5, 1/60, iso 100 and 14mm + Grad G1

Great compositon and wonderful clouds.

The new unique views feature, as I understand it, is a count of how many individual people visit your site each day.

So if I come back and view your picture 3 or 4 times today, the unique view count well show my visit as 1 visit

Once again thanks everyone for looking.

Ina...Thanks and as for the UNIQUE VIEWS ...lonely_oryx told me and its' the number of NEW people who view.
If I look at your Heron shots over and over again it only clicks on the first time so maybe they can delete the normal views now.

Cheers, Keith.
