Clash of the Titans!

A photograph taken this week for SKYWATCH FRIDAY. I apologise for the anticlimax!


'How could they believe such rubbish?'
These are words I've often said,
Speaking of the ancient stories
Of gods living overhead.
Yet, these clouds seem almost human
As they face each other here;
One 'god' bearing-down all golden,
The black 'god' cowering in fear.
One feels gullible and simple
In the face of such great power,
Ancient legends feel quite normal
As two giant cloud-forms tower!
We expected clashing sword-fights,
Lightning strikes and anguished cries.
But a fickle wind came blowing;
We were left with sunny skies!

Very dramatic clouds! I like title and your colorful description of that great skywatch scene.

It would be quite a startling photo, if it was just the clouds and sunset...!

It would most certainly be worth cropping, I think :) Or even putting in the background of ANOTHER photo, because it's a fantastic sight.

All religions are more or less based on old legends, whether we want to acknowledge it or not. But some of them make for great stories!

PS The word verification "word" is sense... :-)
