Default The Phoenix bird flies!

Nothing spectacular, nothing planned, no HDR (for once!!), just a quick 'snap-shot' I took on my way home in my car.

It has been raining very heavy all day. The clouds were gray and heavy and impregnable by the sun all day - until I was sitting in my car on my way home. Suddendly the sky cleared (there was this strong wind chasing the clouds away) and I saw this orange cloud hoovering over the watersoaked and newly plowed fields.

I just had to stop, run across the road, into the field and start shooting.

The shape of this cloud reminden me of the story of anciant Egypt, where a fabulous bird associated with the worship of the sun was said to have a plumage of gold, almost as if it was "made of fire"! The Phoenix bird!
