Hi Dave and welcome to the forums, as I see you're quite new.

I like the photo very much. The V shaped opening / part between the clouds aludes to the great expanse of sky behind those powerful clouds.

The reflection of the sun in the river is the icing on the cake.

Composition with those bushes in the foreground is great too.

Well done!

Paul
