Skywatch time once again..





















A few days ago, monday I think, we had a wicked sun shower...it was amazing. I was running from front door to back door seeing where the good pictures were. This one shows the darker clouds, but on the other side, was blue as could be..and the drops were huge, the sun was glinting off of the raindrops as I'd never seen! It was pretty sweet.


Tonight we had a pretty sever t-storm, i live about 5 miles from my work and it had passed home already. There was plenty of debris on the roads as evidence. I headed to my favorite spot to see what I could see, and this is what I got. I used the sunset setting to accentuate the pink in the sky just a little..











That's looking to the southeast, I saw an egret and several gulls hanging about, enjoying the weather after the storm.
Even someone jet skiing, lol

I like that one on the top left. That big old cloud looks pretty threatening.

Cool - Florida does that! Left side - run for your life - right side - someone get the sunscreen!!
Good shots!
