Monsoon storms from the past few weeks.

Each set was taken on different days.



Stood outside for about 5 minutes, then the storm blew over bring that sheet of rain.

  1. Wow, parsnip, that is FABULOUS! Mother Nature always shows off. How many hours of cloud watch does this represent? All in one day or random? The rainbow at the end is the perfect way to wrap it up.

  2. They are storms of 15 to 20 minutes moving over my home. they move like sheets of water.
    Stand on one side of the street and be dry while the other side it is raining.
    I will go back and number the storms.
    When the lighting is not striking around me I just run outside and snap a few photos.

  3. I love all these moody sky shots, in fact I love a good thunderstorm as long as I am not out in it.


  4. Those are some big storms. Don't let the wind carry away gud dogs.


  5. Wow! Beautiful clouds and rainbow. I am envious of your pool and your mountains.

  6. Tumultuous skies, and beautiful shots!

  7. These are beautiful photos, Gayle!

  8. Wow, wow, wow, wow, on these photos. Brilliant.

  9. Lovely. We've seen a lot of rainbows recently, especially doubles.

  10. What a wonderful series of pictures! Beautiful photos of the sky are so stirring, and yours are definitely beautiful. And they even tell a story with a happy double rainbow ending. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. "The air smells of rain, earth, sage and ozone" --wonderful indeed. In California, some of us call that incense "petrichor". I wait and hope it soon suffuses our air. Compliments on your excellent blog. Following!
