Aeling captures nature in a stormy mood in Thunderstorm, Mile 35, I-25, Highway Colorado. His handling of color in this work provides an eeriness that suits the sinister cloud formation. The dark and foreboding clouds dominate the composition and leave little room for the terrain. Many viewers can relate to the ominous quality of nature apparent in Aeling’s clouds.
