As RT moves ever closer to completing his rewrite of Gilgamesh tablet 4, he is reminded again and again of the powers at the disposal of Enlil, the Sumerian God of Storm–powers that are pitted against the advance of Gilgamesh and his companion Enkidu towards the Cedar Mountain. Gilgamesh may be more god than man, but not even his father/patron, the sun-god Utu, can always prevail against the master of storm and flood. This exceptional photo, taken by Mr. Shane Lear in Orange, Australia, reminds us why.   RT
