Summer storms can come up on you quite quickly and silently in our part of the world. This one had been threatening us the whole day. Although the air temperatures had been very reasonable, it had also been quite humid, and the clouds floating overhead looked distantly menacing. The air was unstable!
It was later in the evening that I noticed that it was turning unexpectedly dark in the house. I slid open the blinds in the living room to notice that the sun had finally given up its struggle to penetrate the clouds, and that the sky had turned ominously dark. It was now filled with low black malevolent clouds swiftly scurrying across its expanse to some unknown destination. It had not started raining just yet. It was a camera moment. I found myself standing on the furniture on the deck taking pictures of the drama unfolding in the skies. I can never get tired of this spectacle. Can you see what I saw? There are stories to be told behind these pictures!
