Taken at Lake Bala, North Wales. Quite a stormy day. This was taken at one of the few moments the rain actually stopped!

Comments and critique always welcomed and appreciated!

The water has a very nicely unsettles feel to it which works well with the brooding sky and promise of change in the far distance.

Oh what a unique photograph. This is awesome.
I have an infinite kinship with dark brooding weather. I am an avid collector of elements of nature photos. Again.........I ask your permission to perhaps one day use this in a manipulation. I will totally understand if the answer is no.

Gorgeous waterscape. The water and the dark tones add a lot of drama to this frame.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.

Fantastic :D

Thanks Paul. But I can't accept that compliment. The work in your gallery really is impressive.

I'm glad you like my work. To be honest, that's what drives me, seeing other peoples work and thinking how much better it is than mine. But, in sying that, art is completely subjective so how can i say one piece of art is better than another? it's just an opinion, there's no good or bad art, maybe im'm just striving to be something i'm not :O_o:

Philosophy teaches us that we are all striving to be something were not. I'm striving to not be creatively bored. :D
