Blanket by ColinHSillerud Blanket by ColinHSillerud
One of those days spent in a sea of clouds. Then, as on cue, the light intensifies, the heart pounds, a stray ray peaks through, palms sweat, sometimes the world just opens for you.

p.s. During the climb, a massive bolt of lightning leapt from the fog. Thunder crackled from each tree. It called for about a minute.

Has anyone else experienced lightning in a snow storm? Happened to me twice now, but I thought it was virtually non-existent.

I love this softness and the warm light on the top of the mountain while the soft clouds are hugging and covering it..

I do like to pretend, when the wind is up and the sky is angry, that I am a lone explorer on a new planet. What do you think of when you shoot?

I can imagine that feeling, it's so exciting!..I haven't been in such places alone though but when I'm doing my pictures my mind is there. If I'm as a model I have to be an actrice. Or when I see the beauty I think I have to capture it and to show to others :)

Well Astranat, I must say you have captured my attention. It sure is a pity that we live so far away from one another. I do have plans to visit Russia one day so as you said, "we never know..." :)
