Incoming indeed, William. Wired and atmospheric electricity both on the way!

William,

(or do you get called "Bill"?)

Your photographs have a parsimonious disciplined frame, so you get to the topic, eschewing color, enclosing what's needed and no extras, declaring your mental image succinctly.

I cannot improve on Tom's comment. My brain is now occupied with his clarification of the title so that nothing else is now open to me.

The picture is arresting and ranks high for me.

Thanks for sharing! I know you travel and are busy. So this is appreciated very much!

Your video of images is so well done and worth everyone experiencing. An advantage is the sequencing of pictures, where one image influences images that follow or ones we have just seen.

Nevertheless, the extra benefits of facing with each photograph, here, one at a time, allows us to more fully appreciate the individual power, with just one photograph occupying our full attention!!

Asher

Now harvesting electricity from storms; that would be something! 'A Gathering of Bolts' so to speak....

Thank you, Mr. Kelman. I will begin dissecting the photos from the videos and posting them in your forum today. Oh and with respect to framing: I like a tight ship at the risk of casting an anchor of too much architecture.

It's about as exciting as Nebraska gets until the ice storms hit.
