Sky

The calm before the storm

The sky was both beautiful and ominous this week in our area.  One day, it displayed a magnificent morning sight, and another day, it gave us a historic rainfall that was the equivalent of a 500 year flood.

In response to the WordPress Daily Post photo challenge today of “Sky,” I have chosen to share with you the amazing beauty of our morning sky with a single ray of sunshine peeking through the clouds earlier this week, which was the precursor of the storm to come.

I wrote about the historic flood in my previous post yesterday.

Stormy Day!

Specs: Canon Digital Rebel XTi, Aperture Priority f/5.0, ISO 800, Exposure 1/400, Focal Length 12mm (Tokina)

These were taken just prior to the second round of storms we had yesterday evening. The colors were just magnificent, and I used my Tokina wide angle lens (with hood) to capture as much of it as possible.

I am loving the rain, even though the first round yesterday evening was pretty intense with 70 mph plus winds and hail.  Our roads flash flooded, and I almost had to swim home from running my last errand.  But, I never gripe about rain in this part of the country.  Never.
