The Gathering

On our way home from the Mt. Angel Wurst Fest there was a wonderful gathering of clouds over the hills. I was able to catch a few pictures before the downpour. Fingers of dark clouds spiraled toward the ground, then were gone just as quickly.

If you look closely--you can see "eyes" toward the bottom of this photograph. lol Yep, I know--I have a GREAT imagination.

These clouds crouching over the hills were awe-inspiring.

I don't know about an eye, but I do see a great eagle swooping towards the earth, great talons ready to snatch you away!!!

Having been pierced by one of your arrows of imagination, I actually see a big ole polar bear hanging his head over the cloud bank having a look at 'what on earth is going on'.

Beautiful! Glad you are able to snap these pictures. I sure do enjoy them :)

My GOODNESS! I see the eagle and I see the polar bear--and the lovely face of a little girl...

You guys are GREAT!

Thanks a bunch for visiting my Brookville Daily Photo and for the comment. Sometimes I don't know what to post each day but it is usually something that I just took a picture of that caught my eye. This post is like that. I was experimenting with shutter speed and aperature to see if I could stop motion and it seemed to work in this photo you saw.

I always enjoy coming here to see what your imagination has conjured up. I see two bumps. Would those be your eyes?

To reply to your question I put the answer to noise under your question back on the blog.

I just got back from a walk and I was thinking of photography and harumphing the sky which was just - just - just, you know. And then I tipped my hat back and really looked and I laughed at myself. The sky is never really just anything. It is. This is a gorgeous one.

To Abraham--yes! There are two "bumps" which admirably seem to represent eyes. (grin)
