  2. Hi, Gayle!

    Those skies are magnificent. They look like watercolor paintings! Thanks for sharing those spectacular sights. "Fangs" for the picture of thehamish, too. :) I wish I could be there right now and rub his belly!

  3. So beautiful. I saw my first cloud to cloud lightening this past week, at least I don't remember seeing it before.

    1. Our storms have been missing for about 2 weeks and we need them. Not the best monsoons so far.

    1. The skies were so exciting when I first moved back but now they are hit and miss, not like true monsoons weather I was use to.

  6. Wow, those photos are incredible! Such gorgeous sky. Some of them a bit scary with lightning! Gud thehamish, it's the best to stay inside and dry, on the comfy couch when it's storming outside :-)

    1. Summer storms are very interesting and while we need the rain can be damaging.

  7. Your storms made the TV news here, Gayle. Doesn't look like the Hamish is too concerned!

  8. Dear Parsnip, your photographs really capture the magnificence of these clouds and the storm they bring.

    Yesterday, a friend and I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art to see a fantastic exhibit of opaque watercolor Indian miniature paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. I thought of you when I realized that several of the paintings included as a narrow horizontal band across the top ...a monsoon cloud. I wish that you could see the exhibit! I mentioned your posts and paintings to my friend, who also was trained as an artist but no longer paints.

    Sweet hamish provides quite a contrast to those clouds. xo

    1. Our skies can be very interesting and artistic.
      I wish I could see this show. I will go on line to see if they have any information on the show.
      Thank you for the information.

  9. Just home from vacation (not Japan yet) and I'm trying to catch up on blogs. What incredible photos. I love to watch storms when they're not too close. Love to Hamish.

    1. So envious, the words vacation and Japan in the same sentence.

  10. Incredible and beautiful shots Gayle - but not as beautiful as you know who (but don't tell him so).

  11. Fantastic photos, Gayle - thank you for sharing them with us. Incredible colours, I'd love to paint them - storm clouds are so dramatic.
    Weaver is right of course, nothing is as beautiful as a certain little chap. Hugs from us here.
