I am always fascinated with clouds and the sky...have separate folders in my collection with just those! These are very pretty shots - I was trying to figure out if they were in the same area...same day - or different altogether. Wherever they were, the cloud formations make for interesting viewing!

Oh my- those look like they mean business! I love spring- but not too fond of the storms. Beautiful set today!

I love the clouds when they look like this, did you get any rain with them?

Storms of some kind, I guess! They are beautiful formations...and I'm curious as to how you were able to capture them without any utility poles or lines (at least the large ones are almost hidden in the trees and brush of your horizon)... Wonderful captures!

very pretty. like the tips of the trees and the strips of blue fighting thru.

Cathy said...

Sometimes we forget just how beautiful it is if we just look up! Thanks for the reminder. These are wonderful.

I wonder if there's any rain in them there clouds. They are beautiful but around here they haven't been very productive. Because of the low snow fall, we are way below normal in precip here. Wouldn't mind if you would send a few of those out east with a bit of moisture in them that is willing to come out.

For the first time since last summer i can report that we have had 3 cloudless days here in the UK with highs in the mid 70's.... this is not normal for us.

Excellent group of photos.

I love storm clouds! We don't usually get them like that until July and August.

Beth said...

Those first few sky shots are looking a bit threatening.

Your were looking up at fortunate times in these photos, Brian! Last year I got in the habit of photographing our KY skies through a First of the Month meme that I participated in. Now most days I look at the skies with camera in hand--usually a beautiful sight regardless of the weather.
