Hello friends, just a quick post to share a few photos of a crazy, freaky storm that blew through our area this week.
An old fashioned sun shower. It was pretty awesome. I heard the rain start and it was coming down really hard. I grabbed my camera and ran out on the front porch only to be blinded by the bright sunshine. What the heck?? Very strange to watch the rain pour down, thunder and all. Yet the sun is shining and casting shadows everywhere. Very unusual.
The white streaks are the large rain drops coming off the roof...so cool!
Looking upward you can see the storm and rain to my left and the sun to my right.
The dried up coneflowers are starving for the moisture. I love their large seed heads...perfection!
I like to collect some of the seeds, but most are left on the flower for the American Goldfinches.
They love coneflower seeds and are so much fun to watch as they feast.
The storm brought with it some gorgeous clouds. You know how I adore my clouds.
Just before the sun set it got very stormy and pretty at the same time. The sun was setting to the right and you can see some of that sun coloring the clouds to the left. If you look real close at the middle left you can see a little fluffy white cloud drifting by like he has nothing to do with this big storm. He's just moving along on his merry way...love it.
What have you seen in your sky lately.....What!....you don't look at your clouds? Go ahead..look up, I promise you will not be disapointed.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
