Riders on the Storm

Filed Under clouds | 28 comments

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’sThunder 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.

Spring

has

been

very

reluctant.

I

cloud

watch

as

I

sit

a top

a quiet

mountain road

or

on a

park

bench

wondering

when

the gardens

will

sing

to

us

again.

The

clouds

tell

me

to

stop

and

breath.

They

whisper

telling me

to

relax

and

enjoy

the

BEAUTY

now.

Blue Sky RS

Shhhh– Just a day of watching clouds go by…

Frosted Road RS

Frost wet air makes almost a water color effect.

 

Sky not sure the season

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.

Hooked on Clouds

Tetons RS

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.

morning montana RS

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.

storm rolls in RS

And the Thunder rolls – look how the colors come alive. (SOC–straight out of the camera)

fat clouds RS

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?)

oct sky from plane RS

Whether they are billowy against a perfect blue sky or slate grey or autumns’ gold– they are mesmerizing.

sheep watching me RS

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.

Color n clouds RS

A colorful Serendipitous find.

full rainbow RS

Then there is always the GIFT– the Promise.
