Wait For It


Yesterday evening and today have been so grey and rainy that I considered going outside, pointing my camera at the sky, and letting raindrops fall on the lens. Instead, I waited. About 5:30 I was rewarded with a flash of setting sun under the stormclouds, sunlit trees contrasting with the dark sky.


Is what you see what others see when you look up? The question is answered at Skywatch Friday.

I love this shot. The sky is so interesting and the fall colors on the tip of the trees is beautiful. Wonderful lighting.

This is wonderful - the dark, heavy clouds over the brilliant hues of Autumn trees.
Enjoy your weekend.
Cheers.

That is rarely what I see when I look up, Christine. We Brits have our own brand of grey sky which is very boring indeed! What beautiful colours you captured!
