Stormy Sky Pictures

 We have had a lot of storms this year... and we do enjoy watching them.

I had seen a Mackerel sky the day before, which can mean a change in the weather... or storms, so I was expecting a storm.

Some storms are interesting and this one had some wonderful cloud formations. My kids and I went to take pictures of it.


The day started out with a beautiful sky, as shown above. We have had lots of great clouds in the sky this season.

By evening, the clouds were  moving fast and there was much turbulence. We do enjoy watching such skies and this one had a very dark color to it.

 In a storm like this, the sky tends to be interesting in all directions as the storm builds.

 There was much lightning and lots of changing clouds. 

We were not the only ones out taking pictures either. It was an impressive sight.

 The lightning lit the sky and highlighted the clouds, making the storm more impressive.

Finally the darkness increased so much and the rain started a little, so we went home. By the time we got home, it was raining extremely hard and we got wet running in to the house.

My husband had stayed home... he thinks we are strange for taking so many pictures, but he enjoys looking at some of them. :) 

 Have you been getting storms? Do you photograph them also? I am so glad the storms don't last, but I can appreciate the power of God evident in them as only He can control such storms. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you have a great week.  :)

  1. Joy, these are stunning images. I love a stormy sky. It beckons as a time to snuggle and appreciate the shelter we take for granted. Much Love, Mimi xxx

    1. Thank you! I do enjoy the stormy sky... the way it changes so quickly and looks amazing. I also love knowing that God is much more powerful than a strong storm... and I love the idea of snuggling in our homes with the family all together.... reading, spending time together, baking or other,.... while the storm rages outside. :) Thank you for visiting.

  2. Gorgeous stormy skies! Love your photos.

    1. Thank you... it was pretty amazing. I love the feeling of the energy in the air and the blustery conditions. :)

  3. What a fun adventure & a great memory made with your kids!!

    1. So true! I don't want to be unsafe, so we are careful, but the kids and I love to watch such storms.... and we come home to share a few pictures w/ my husband. Going on photo shoots is not his thing and he is rather puzzled by our interest. :) We do have fun and we have made a lot of great memories this way.

  4. I love stormy photos, what a gorgeous series! Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

    1. Thank you! So glad you stopped by from Montreal! :)

  5. Great photos as always, Joy! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  6. Beautiful images of an impressive and scary sky!

    1. Thank you! It has been a year of stormy skies this year... we had a bad storm the other day where trees and power lines were down. I'm glad they aren't all like that. I am enjoying the beautiful cloud formations though.
