    Yea, professional photographer might be your next profesion after your retire from walking everyday. Beautiful, stunning and once again…if I may, you captured the heavenly rays guiding your way. Peace brother.
    Best picture yet – agreed. That stream and the reflection of the sky..just captivating.

  3. Karen Too says:

    Very dramatic, stunning.

    Wow!! :-D

  5. Michael in Altanta says:

    I’m breathless over this one as well. Matt, you’re a really talented hobo.

  6. katzien in austin says:

    Agreed….it’s got to be in the top 20 ‘nature’ pictures so far. And Matt is only half way there! I’m so excited for how the scenery will change as he approaches the mountains. In Austin, we barely have ‘hill country’ and most everything is flat. Good health and blessings to you Matt!!

    Wow, everyone is really cottoning to this tree.

    Reminds me of Lewis and Clark…they “looked” for cottonwood trees…and all settlers traveling West knew the same thing…”find cottonwoods, find water”…Lewis and Clark used them for firewood, dugout canoes, building their Mandan fort…etc…great picture, great trip…the spirit of Lewis and Clark no doubt are with you…

    This is a lovely photo. I love seeing the rain falling from the clouds in the distance. I’m not sure but those clouds look “lumpy” on the bottom. That’s a sign of potentially heavy wind. Watch your weather forecast, Matt.

    Love this photo… the clouds were definitely holding rain- hope it missed you!

  13. Angelica says:

    Is that the Lone Cottonwood from the Laura Ingalls Wilder books?

  14. Mike says:

    This is a great pictures!

  15. John L. says:

    The droopy clouds are Mammatus clouds. They almost always signify severe weather approaching. They look like boobs.

  16. CP in MI says:

    What a gorgeous photo, it could be art.
