One of the most beautiful skies is that in the early evening following a storm in which the sun illuminates the wet earth while the eastern skies is shrouded in a very dark gray cloak. Sometimes there is a rainbow. It was like that tonight when I went to church. I wanted to stand outside looking at the east sky and take in all the freshness of the air after the downpour this afternoon.
When we got home, the sky changed and this huge bellowing cloud stretched over as if to take in one final bow to my little town. I pulled the car in, ran inside and grabbed the Nikon. You have to be fast for seconds count. Clouds change rapidly especially when the sun is already yawning on the horizon.
The colors were bright orange and gray. But I lost time. I changed it. Many of my cloud photographs have been taken or changed to gray scale or monochrome. I prefer it that way.
There is a lot of rain in September in North Texas. I will make the most of it all and share my days with you.
