Sunset Stormin'

Heading on Highway 99 just before the small town of Dundee--I became so enthralled with the unexpected beauty of clouds and skies--I could not drive properly. So I pulled over near a great field and started taking pictures.

This is one of my favorites from that early evening sky show. I love this photo--an Oregon rainstorm sweeping into the sunset.

Your clouds look like those we had this morning. Now the sun is out bright and the temperature is about 37 degrees F. Our clouds were not as pretty though. Mine were all gray.

Lovely picture Sissy Bee.
Thanks for the update on blackberries, yikes I didn't know they took off and grew like that, down here you have to get down on your knees and beg to get a single berry and a gimpy vine. I think it's a desert thing. And speaking of deserts there isn't a warmside left to walk on down here girlfriend. I was exstatic because the weatherman said it would be in the low fifties today...ya the sun is shining and the wind is blowing frostbite at 30 mile an hour. Brrr

Have a toasty day, love ya

Beautiful clouds, yet again, sissie. I like the hint of rain falling out of the one ...

Good thing you stopped driving, Beth. I know how the clouds affect you.

Hello again, Beth. The yellow flower is called Chalice Cup vine (Solandra maxima). I'm glad you like my "new" cat.

What a delightful collage of natural phenomena, color and drama and isn't that a sneaky cloud snake slithering off stage right?

You find magic whereever you go! I'm glad too, that you pulled over to take these pics!

Lois said...
