Sky Watch #143: Rainy Saturday

09 Jun

Last Saturday, June 4th, was a rainy day. I didn’t get to do my grocery shopping and other errands until after 5 pm when there was break in the rain. Naturally, I brought my camera with me while we go from one store to another. Enjoy our rainy skies:

    Rainy skies are welcome around here–as long as they don’t bring tornadoes with them. Yours are lovely and show the many moods of a spring storm. Happy Skywatch Friday.

    I love the dramatic clouds! Sometimes the sunsets are just so casual that we don’t even see them!

    The first one is my favorite and the succeeding ones look menacing! We’ve been having rains for more than a week. Intermittent, but they keep returning. I really miss the sun nowadays.

    Beautiful stormy skies — it might not always be fun to be out in the rain, but a storm makes interesting skies.

    Those are some heavy skies! We have had quite a cool late Spring I must say. Lovely subjects for photos though.

    This was definitely a wonderful evening of stormy skies for you and your camera. They are so unusual and striking with their puffs and blankets of varying shades of gray. I was awestruck by the images they are so fine. Wish I had been there to see them.

    Dramatic skies. That’s not such a bad sunset, and I like all the vegetation in the foreground.
