stormy weather

We had some nasty storms blow across our state last night. You always know it’s bad when you see that “shelf” of dark clouds moving in. It was a fast moving front and after it blew through I went out and took some pictures. One of my clematis vines lost most of its petals in the wind and heavy downpour, but I thought it was still quite lovely and worthy of being photographed.

  1. Bookbabie, glad you weren’t struck by a tornado! Those clouds sure do look ominous! The flowers are still amazing, like delicate sculptures! You would think they were crafted by elves!

  2. I wish we would have a rainstorm/thunderstorm just so I have an excuse to curl up with a good book. I love the stormy sky shot. It reminds me of the sky in the movie Ghostbusters…

  3. Sort of unrelated to your post but what kind of camera do you use? I found your site while visiting Books on the Brain and noticed how crisp your photos are.

    I am the testing phase right now after returning an expensive Olympus.

  4. Most of my pics for the blog (and that I sell on iStock ) are taken with a Canon G9, a great little camera that’s kind of a combo of a point & shoot and an SLR. I highly recommend it Ti!

    • I am most definitely solar-powered as well but I’ve noecitd lately that even with it being gorgeous and sunny and 60 degrees outside I’m kind of mopey because its supposed to be cold and snowy and winter wonderlandy Maybe I’m more seasonably powered lol

  5. My parent’s basement flooded last week and they had no power for three days, fires, record floods and tornadoes…global warming.
