Beautiful wide sky giving a great feeling of space, and soft sensation with those wooly clouds. Not to mention the rays of light and the electric poles. A zen photo. Annierita

The sense of scale here is like nothing I've seen since Ansel Adams. Biblical proportions and drama Ian!

I'd love to see this printed very large - I think those power lines would really make for a potent image then. It's a fantastic image as it is, I just suspect the size on the web doesn't do it justice.

Just amazing. I love those sunray pictures and the powerlines at the horizon are making the difference.

The size ratio of sky to ground, or perhaps better put, the sense of scale is dramatic in this photo. There is zero detail in the ground area, but all the focus is concentrated on the sky, and you did a beautiful job of capturing and presenting that to the viewer. This photo is very simple, but the diagonal sky presentation is well seen and skillfully presented.
