Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining

When I looked at the sky I've reminded of this idiom - "every cloud has a silver lining" which means that you should never feel hopeless because difficult times always lead to better days.

Difficult times are like dark clouds that pass overhead and block the sun. When you look more closely at the edges of every cloud we can see the sun shining there like a silver lining. Those dark clouds fade away and the sun shines out.
P.S. In the image the skyscape seems ten times less impressive than it was in fact but yet superb! :)

EC Member,

:) I was going to ask where is that face, I have been looking - you just gave the answer. Hmm, it seems like an angry face to me :)

It is a very nice picture and I really like all the explanations and idiom you wrote along with it.

Thank you for sharing.
