REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Monday, July 9, 2012

I've looked at clouds from both sides now....

It's hot weather here, finally, and that means pop-up thunderstorms.  We've had two in two days.  The clouds are fascinating before the storm.  I took the photos from three vantage points: a country road northeast of town, a country road southeast of town, and my own back porch.



This is the 180-degree view of the previous two images









From my back porch right before the wind and rain came.

What a gorgeous series this is, Evelyn!
It has cooled down here some, but we desperately need rain. All plants, grass, etc is at a standstill now, and no rain in sight at least for this week. :-(

they're gorgeous! we've been getting pop-ups here, too. just wish we'd get a tad more rain, but the overcast and wind helps to cool things down, at least. :)

Once I was on a flight that was trying to land in Seattle and we had to layer/circle. We were in the most interesting layers of clouds that billowed and spun all around us. It was surreal at worst... hahaha. Thanks for those great snaps. awesome.

Wow beautiful clouds, as long as they don't have volcanic ash in them

No hint of rain here -- it's getting rather dire, I'm afraid. These cloud formations are amazing.

I love storm clouds! We are just getting into our rainy season down here and have been getting some pop-up thunderstorms too. I like the "splash" look of the clouds in photos 9 & 10! :)

Gorgeous cloud photos, Evelyn! Hope you got a good amount of rain if you needed it. My favorites are #6 and 7.
