This is beautiful, Glenn. The depth in the lower portion, above the tree line is incredible ... a super sighting!
I might have cropped the top down to between the two wisps (right), so the focus was more on the golden rainbow effect.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks Judy. Appreciate your suggestion, although I might have been more inclined to crop a bit off the bottom, excess tree silhouettes. For me, this is a picture of more than only the golden light. Rather, it is one of the totality of dynamic sky energy that was up/out there at this moment. The golden light is placed closely proximate with the blue sky, the tree shadow/silhouette, and the varied textures and colors of the darker gray clouds and that deep cloud bank, which is where the textures, colors and light can all dance.

What a handful of clouds for Iron Mike!

Thanks, Glenn, for your explanation ... and sometimes we just have to BE THERE to take in the whole picture. ;D
