The sun came out to demonstrate its supremacy, again.

Sardegna, september 2000.

    Thanks Rodolfo.
    A smell of wet soil and electrified air, Vanesa, filled by the tension of a whiplashed atmosphere...

    The sky is amazing. There's a beautifully 'vast' feel to this one.

    The sky is saturated with water, yet the land is buring dry. This image reminds me of STING's "Heavy Cloud but No Rain". Check the lyrics here www.poemhunter.com/song/heavy-cloud-no-rain/

    My favorite verses are:
    .................................................
    Back in time with louis xvi
    At the court of the people he was number one
    He’d be the bluest blood they’d ever seen
    When the king said hi to the guillotine
    The royal astrologer was run out of breath
    He thought that maybe the rain would postpone his death
    He look in sky but he look in vain
    Heavy cloud but no rain

    Well the land was cracking and the river was dry
    All the crops were dying when they ought to be high
    So to save his farm from the banker’s draft
    The farmer took out a book on some old witchcraft
    He made a spell and a potion on a midsummer’s night
    He killed a brindled calf in the pale moonlight
    He prayed to the sky but he prayed in vain
    Heavy cloud but no rain
    .........................................................
    I asked my baby if there’d be some way
    She said she’d save her love for a rainy day
    I look in the sky but I look in vain
    Heavy cloud but no rain

    Strange coincidence, Em: I used the word vast for the title of my next uploaded image.
    Thanks for quoting, Yu-Fen, I did not know this lyric.
