Sky Watch Friday

I took these Wed night as we have been having some pretty good storms the last few days, having temperatures to 104 on the weekend and then going to this, although it isn't cold it makes for humid days that we are not used too.

Great photos for sky watch friday, it is fun to watch nature unhold in stormy weather as long as you are safe and dry. Rainbows are hard to photograph but yours is lovely. Thanks for sharing and your kind comments on my post earlier.

Carver said...

You got some very dramatic stormy shots. I also love the rainbow in the last one. I know about grabbing my camera and not getting what I planned on but you still got a nice touch of the rainbow.

Louise said...

A beautful series of photos.I'm glad you managed to capture the rainbow, they do have a habit of disappearing quickly, don't they.It make me think sometimes that maybe us SW people should walk round with our cameras permanently round our necks,lol.

Rainbows are difficult to catch!
Temps of 104ยบ are toasty! No doubt cooler days are welcome! "Louis" was happy to see that you had stopped by!

Those are some dramatic clouds. I like the one where you used the flash and lit up the tree leaves.

Storm photos are exciting to catch. Rainbows not so easy. I saw lovely colours at sunset last night but by the time I went out with my camera they had gone.

alicesg said...

Fantastic to catch the rainbow in these dark clouds. Have a nice weekend.

Alan said...

Those do look like some dark storm clouds. That is one nice side effect of TS Fay - she's kept the temperatures in the mid 80s for a few days since the sun can't break through the clouds! :)

retta519 said...

Minkydo said...

SkyWatch Friday

Someone must've grabbed that pot of gold on the other end of the rainbow for it to disappear so quickly. :) Have a good weekend!

Jim said...

Hi guys, I like those pictures at twilight with the neighborhood electric lights peeking out.

Marie said...

Beautiful series :)

Arija said...

Great sky pictures but those clouds are threatening at least you got a rainbow.

Namnet said...

Wonderful set of photographs. Those clouds are beautiful. And last two pictures grabs me - those leaves make the photo almost mystical, and the rainbow among the despondently grey clouds is so hopeful.
Thank you for dropping by my blog and nice comment. Have a nice day and happy SWF:-)

Celeste said...

Those look like some serious storms! Great shots. Thanks for sharing.

Max-e said...

Nice series of shors

Kahshe Cottager said...
