A wonderful capture, and I have to tell you how sorry I am about the neglect of the historical buildings in your town. And on another note how much I admired your beautiful heading of the pink poppy opening! Lovely!

Lovely dreamlike quality to the picture. Especially since you say those clouds didn't actually open up and pour!)

It just goes to prove that even storm clouds have silver linings.
