    So Pretty

    Often I like what goes on in the sky opposite the sunset. The colors are gentler and the blues are still visible. Of course I have the wide view to even have that choice. Our island and where I live on it is perfectly located to see that.

    Panorama

    This morning there was this huge one cloud, spanning all the way across the beach. I took 7 shots and made a panorama pic. Too bad this has to be so small to fit a computer screen. You can see that there was a little bit of rain coming out of the cloud. I also found it interesting how uneven the bottom of the cloud is…

    Well thank you Dan It was an unbelievable cloud, like a huge ship sailing. I saw it out of the kitchen window and ran to the beach. Those things change so fast, you have to really take advantage of the moment.

    Yes it is, and it truly is spooky. We are the lightening capital of the US. Those storms are dangerous, and when they roll in like this, you have to run for cover. Many people get struck by lightening here.

    I would love to have some shots of the lightening but I am not foolish enough to stand there to do it. After I took this photo I ran home. Lightening was already highlighting the bank of clouds.

    I am so awed by the power of these storms.

    Yeah, only fools will challenge lightning. It's beautiful but deadly and it stikes lightning fast

    Here's some interesting reading about lightning.

    Great captures as always Datura!

    Thanks Gold.

    That is an interesting read

    When you have lived in an area as long as I have here (about 30 years), you get a really good feel about what will happen in a day. The pattern is very regular actually. We plan things according to this knowledge, like never go shopping this time of year in the afternoon. Storms are a guaranteed, and more people get struck by lightening in the parking lots than any other place (except people in construction).

    We also have in our area very knowledgeable weather people on TV, all is thoroughly explained over time, so the understanding is really good on this issue, the why and the how.

    I am amazed by the weather here though, it is a wonder to see.

    Almost Dark

    Today the turns (shorebirds) had returned for the first day. They nest in Alaska and after raising their young spend the winter in the warm climes with us. After sunset they take off and fly to their night quarters. I do not know where, but probably some lonely mangrove islands where no humans live.

    Ulrike,

    I really do envy the place you are living at.

    Here is a sky picture from my place at 8 am:

    It is a nice place, it was by choice a long time ago, it also required a lot of giving up in other areas of life to be here.

    Your place looks like you have either morning mist or pollution, or maybe both? It looks like you have a nice view when it is clear?

    Tropical Low

    This afternoon I went out into the rain and held my umbrella in one hand and the camera in the other, the wind whipped around too, but I got an interesting shot of one of the squall lines

    Vicious

    Yesterday -- this became the most vicious storm this year so far. The lightening and thunder were so strong, we actually moved to the middle of the house and unplugged a lot of electrical devices. Do not quite trust the surge protectors in storms like that. A half hour later the sun was shining again…

    Yeah, I saw that on the radar. Most impressive (from a strictly meteorological standpoint, of course).
