Great Sky.., but I have a question, is the tree an addition?
Reply

Shmaff Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2006
no the tree is real and is part of the shot - it is a papaya tree hence the title - thanks for the comment

I dont know what to be impressed by more, someone waking up at dawn to take a photo.. or the photo itself. Yeah, that is one sweet cloud formation.. I can see why you fell in love with it.
