The End of a Storm

This photo was taken on Wednesday March 12, 2014 at 6:52 PM.
The location was outside of Front Royal, Virginia.
The "Take It!" came from having had most of the day be overcast with lots of wind and intermittent rain.  I was driving home from having had a meeting with a great fellow that is helping me with a project.  He lives in rural Virginia a little over an hour from my home.  I was anxious to get home - but could not help but admire the cloud formation as the wind moved them along their way in the sky.  I stopped the car and took off my hat to stand and catch this wonderful setting.
The After Take: I have shown this picture to only a few people.  The reaction was almost all the same.  A complete stop and look to take it all in. This was a match up with how I found myself taking the picture in the onset.
Here is the hope that we all will take that moment when we see something that enchants us, to stop and savor it, if at all possible.
Wishing you all my very best,

    The parting of the grey clouds, drive home must have been easier.

    I'm going to venture a guess like the other days photo and say this probably looks like a different scene when its all green during the summer months. It does seem like a peaceful moment seeing the end of a storm.

    What a great view. I wonder if its a cattle field or something of the sort.

    Was this taken near the pond? Looks like a similar layout.

    Its like the sky and ground are mirroring each other. You have emptiness surrounded by clouds above and emptiness surrounded by a treeline on either side below.

    Hi Jim: Yes - this was down the road a bit from the pond. There were many temptations to stop even more - but had to get home. Thanks for your being so observant.

    Hi Yuppie7 Thanks for your insightful comment. I had not looked at it that way at all, but have enjoyed seeing it from your perspective.
