Calm before the Storm

An old house in the countryside in the Skövde area. The heavy rain started about 2 minutes after this shot.

In the vicinity, there are fields with ancient monuments. (Ekorrnavallen)

    I love just about everything about this image. My only improvement would be to not have the horizon centered vertically. If you had more sky, it could be a better image -- especially on a cloudy day like you shot. :)
