Gorgeous, you really captured the colours and textures perfectly!

Nessa said...

This reminds me of the paintings by the English landscape artist J. M. W. Turner.

Now that's one of the most beautiful skies I've seen in a long time...reminds me of the ceiling paintings at the Palais de Versailles! Just gorgeous!

Re population growth: I don't know what happened...Stone Creek's been rather in the doldrums for a couple of years and now all of a sudden it's going crazy with new models and new construction everywhere. I think a lot of it has been due to Obama's "Stimulus" which included monies to home buyers...That's one of the reasons we sold our house and bought in Stone Creek - $6500 was a nice stimulus!

Overall, though, Florida's population declined last year for the first time in many years.

Maybe everyone's going to Toronto?

Hope that clarified the question.

A Turner perhaps, or a Constable? Very beautiful classic picture. Thank you for sharing it.
