The clouds at Lake Powell were spectacular last night. Today it's clear, and the forecast says sun, sun, sun for the next several days, so I think we got treated to a rare show. It didn't actually rain, but there was a LOT of visual drama!

I had a designer friend who, when seeing sights like these, said, "isn't it amazing what they can do with plastic???" (That was his big 'nature' joke, lol, though he actually did appreciate nature, even if he tended to see it as "design"...) Lots of sweeping contrasts here, and I remember how light across huge Western formations could make them look almost artificial, in the way they stand out so stunningly against their backgrounds. Your layers here are in wonderful harmony; and including the dark clouds on top---looks like they're closer than the other clouds---gives a perfect frame, and explains why there's such shadow-play in this landscape. (Ie, because of the presence of storm clouds throughout.) Beautiful how the clouds appear as different versions of the mountains, as if there were two mountain ranges, not one. Even the foreground mimics the peaks...The image is varied, but also feels like a big sweep, a big single vision; and, tonally, it shines in all that dark like gentle diadems. Beautiful work once again. (And it would be wonderful large...)
