Turner paintings

Watching the sky and its changing hues this evening, I am moved to post a handful of my favourite paintings by William Turner. I find the exaggeration of nature's elements in these pictures very powerful and emotive. Indeed, the effect seems to keep hold in the mind's eye, serving to provide a dramatic overlay when looking back at the real objects - it is a reality exaggerated by art in the best of possible ways.
