Strange Light

Strange Light

The sun is low and setting behind me, so this strange light is not
coming from the sun. I tried to work out how it could be happening
and I think it must be reflected from a huge thunderhead on top of
the storm cloud that has just gone over. the light is coming through
a hole in the clouds that I can't actually see.

As usual, no-one else noticed!!

Excellent storm scene with lots of selective light. I've never seen anything like this! A funnel in the making? Hopefully not..

I like the Thai patch and Cantina signs almost hidden. Cables, Wires is usually a No No for me in photos, so this caught my eye. Somehow it works, the beauty of photography. Have you ever tried editing the cable/wires out of picture to see the results? If you so wish I would spend the time to do this, I'm just curious what the end results would look like. Thanks for all the great comments on my photography.

Strange goings on down at the Thai Patch - maybe aliens! I think you have it right,though, that light is being scattered inside the tall cloud. Well seen and shot.
