Cloud Lines Kevin Vandivier
USA

Honorable Mention

"Cloud Lines"
While flying to an assignment, I looked out the window to see these clouds all lined up as though they had been placed in an order. I’ve never seen anything like it. I grabbed my camera and shot a few frames. Upon on returning to my studio I performed my post production on the image and again was amazed at how these clouds just lined up so perfectly as if it was a field and Jesus had just planted them there in these rows. I felt that perhaps God was metaphorically telling me to plant His seeds in His fields, my translation…Love others as He has loved me.
