Do you see him? Big ominous ghost hovering over an Autumn Canyon.
(Edit was added for some people who are Cloud “challenged”)–
Join with us as we celebrate what is beautiful around us!
Of course, as always, love your comments – What are you finding beautiful around you?
With a loud clap of thunder I was aroused from my Sunday afternoon nap. It wasn’t that late and yet it was very dark outside.
I walked on to my patio to see the darkest of skys… With the next boom of thunder, I was out the door to become one with the storm.
What colors do you see? Blue, gray, cream and a touch of coral?
There wasn’t a lot of wind– but I could almost hear the clouds moving as the rumble of the thunder came closer and closer.
Serendipitous capture for certain! Although it looks it– the lightening didn’t strike that particular house. (bet they were happy inside)
I couldn’t resist the song choices to go along with this post– Rider’s On the Storm — by The Doors. (Dang that Jim Morrison was hot!)
And Garth Brook’s — Thunder Rolls. I loved the beginning of both of these songs.
No touch up here… Straight out of the camera.
Have a wonderful week and stop by Mary’s for others showing their Monday Mosaics.

Shhhh– Just a day of watching clouds go by…
Frost wet air makes almost a water color effect.
Rhapsodies in white
and the fairest of blue,
pre-nuptial visions of tufted preludes
and painting a picture
within the mind’s eye,
I watch clouds perform
as they softly float by.

As long as I can remember I have been a cloud watcher… even a cloud chaser; trying to find that perfect perch to watch a new painting unfold.
Dark clouded skies seduce me. They draw me in, wanting to get closer.
If, as I am caught in the movement of the dark and light textures, there is a thunder clap, all the more appealing. ABOVE: Montana morning storm rolls in.
And the Thunder rolls – look how the colors come alive. (SOC–straight out of the camera)
My best friend Linda(I think we had to be the old age of 9) had the perfect cloud watching backyard. It was a sloped grassy hill where we could lay for hours finding horses, cats, castles, dragons and Indian Chiefs (mostly they are in profile)– it was a never ending list. “can you see that old man?” I would ask her. “nope– where– show me.” One day she found one that looked exactly like her grandma who had a very large rear end. Holding my sides laughing…I squeaked out …”you said BUTT!” (Do you see the Indian Chief ABOVE?)
Whether they are billowy against a perfect blue sky or slate grey or autumns’ gold– they are mesmerizing.
I promise– just as I finished taking this shot tonight, I noticed the Mama sheep and her baby lambs. The storm had just finished. Look how close they hold to her. I’m sure they are very puzzled by the funny woman taking their family portrait.
A colorful Serendipitous find.
Then there is always the GIFT– the Promise.
