An amazing cloud formation was right outside my house in May this year. Do you see on the left handside it looks like a young lamb with its head in the air and little tail.. with the majestic Lion sitting behind watching.. I grabbed the camera quick, not wanting to miss this.

Kia ora Dawnie,

Superb view from your deck I suppose :-) Great how you captured the warm light from the clouds and the wonderful reflection on the water of the bay. The clear blue sky above the cloudscape creates an excellent frame together with the dark bushes on the bottom of the picture. A wonderful panorama well captured and presented.


Hi Dawn,
Yes! I see the lamb and the light lit by the sun!
Wonderful capture. Clouds change their forms so quickly; if we don't act fast we lose them.
On top of that, the colors and scenery are simply marvellous!

Hi Dawn,

The warm golden sunlight on the clouds is nicely captured. The reflections and silhouettes are wonderful as well. Nice balance of sky to land.

Hi Dawn!
You are right! Really amazing clouds!!
The image is marevellous and very well composed. I like the silhouettes in foreground wich make the splendid, colorful light and reflections stand out.
Very well done : congratulations!
Ciao! Vanda

It looks like a big kitty and a small kitty! HAHA! This is a killer shot Dawn! One I would have been chewing my leg off to have! Excellent illumination on the water. I might would have not made the shot as "orangy"....if I get a chance I'll do a WS and show you. But the impact is just perfect!
**be nice kitty......

Kia ora MF

I LOVE this photo of the lamb lying down with the lion and want you to send it to me (large size please - sign it too!!)

The colours look right here - it was a strange glow in the sky that night... and the image is just great. The reflections show up so well on the water too - so shiny.

Well done
