Skywatch Friday 43

We had rain and storms moving through the area last Thursday through Sunday. Saturday evening I was shopping with a friend. When we exited the store about 6:30pm, this is what the sky looked like directly above us looking west:










This is the sky looking towards the north:



Towards the west, behind the orange-tinted clouds above us:



I really liked the way these criss-crossed power lines at the intersection looked against the storm clouds:



To the south:



Thankfully, we both made it home before it started to pour again.

Oh my - these shots are gorgeous! What lovely colours and cloud formations.

Heather said...

Magiceye: Thank you!

Namaki: I agree, the larger and more ominous the clouds, the better the photos! Thanks for viiting!

Hannah: Juicy is a good word for them. I was surprised it did not storm harder than it did.

Heather said...

Louis: Thank you, and thanks for visiting!

Thanks, Jana! You're right, not very relaxing, but rather exciting. While some might be terrified by such clouds, I always find them to be a bit energizing. *G*

Heather said...

Thanks, Lea - I'm glad we made it home before it rained, too. Had enough of that lately, LOL.

LadyFi: Thank you, and thanks for stopping by! ☺

There's something stark and beautiful about storm clouds sometimes. Nice pics.

Alice Audrey said...

Wow, that was quite the dramatic sky.

Heather said...

Greg: Yes, storm clouds can be dramatic, especially at dawn or sunset.

Kelley: Thank you!

Alice: It was indeed! I was surprised we did not get a severe storm with those clouds.

Alice Audrey said...

When ever I'd see clouds like that out there, I'd imagine funnel clouds forming. I could kind of see it in the third one down for instance.

Heather said...

Yes, I could easily imagine a funnel coming down from that one. Thankfully, we didn't get any of the nasty stuff down here, though there was a tornado in the east-central part of the state that weekend.
