  1. Ominous and dark. Reminds me of a classic movie “On the Beach” about the end of the world because everyone decided to bomb everyone else…I think it was before nuclear anything, but the idea was the same as in a nuclear holocaust. Anyway, the few survivors were in Australia waiting for the deadly cloud to catch up with them and there was a classic scene of Burt Lancaster and (I think) Deborah Kerr….wait for it….On the Beach. 😉

  2. Beautiful work Robert 🙂 love the rain on the horizon.

  3. Great post. And I also think of the movie, On The Beach. Really…you should watch it.

  4. I had the movie right, but it was Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner….the other scene with Lancaster and Kerr was in From Here To Eternity, but had the same ominous darkness.

    • Understood. 🙂 I tried to find it, but unfortunately Netflix doesn’t have it. I don’t remember what I used to do before I subscribed, haha. 🙂 I will find it though, all the comments have piqued my curiosity now!

  6. I love this post. The soundtrack too. Great stuff Robert!

  7. Beautiful. Looks fearful and hopeful at the same time.

  8. BEAUTIFUL !!!!! I love it, it reminds me of when I was living in Australia, I would wake up early to sit on the beach before starting my day, just watching the amazing cloud formations and finish my evenings doing the same thing, I love Clouds 🙂 And the title ” Life ( goes on)” PERFECT , just the reminder I needed this morning, Thank You 🙂 I’m ready for a new beginning.

  9. Robert, another home run.

  10. Its a great shot but a bit depressing in B&W, how about a colour comparrison/ :-))

  11. Super capture, great atmospheric cloud shot !!

  12. Great combo and great shot of course. The potrate set below is fab as well, I like the people, expressions & B&W.

  13. The title is perfect “Life (goes on)” and just right for what this past week brought. I am amazed at your talent and the moods you so perfectly create in your photos.

    Interesting point of view.

  15. Pillsbury Dough Boy’s mother ?

  16. this is interesting, if a little heavy. ‘On the beach’ was about a nuclear holocaust, if I remember correctly.

    • Thanks Shimon. I have to confess, I hadn’t ever seen/heard of that movie. After all the mentions of it on here, my curiosity has piqued and I need to find a copy now.

  17. Great photograph, Robert. That’s one threatening cloud. Love The Damned too. Captain Sensible’s on the radio tonight over here.

  18. WAW WAW WAW WAW!!!! LOVE IT!!!!

  19. Your work is fantastic Robert! I’m sitting here trying to figure out how you get such great shots!

  20. This is outrageously good; I’ve never been in love with a photograph before…

  21. Definitely my kind of image, Robert. Because of the storm clouds in the distance, the image might be described as mildly “threatening”. And, of course, dark. I love it………

  22. I like that you are not afraid to go dark. The image called for it.

    • Thanks, photosclosetohome! Guilty as charged. 🙂 For some reason, I really enjoy a stronger than necessary contrast on some nature shots. It really brings out the drama and creates an interesting mood.

  23. great photo Robert…very ominous…I can practically feel the storm surge! I also noticed a face (a sheep?) in the upper left quadrant of the clouds. Spirits abound!

  24. Wow…an amazing shot and process.

  25. Robert, Please check this out and thanks for being my blog friend!
