Stormy Skies!

A week ago we  experienced the darkest stormy skies I ever remember!

The clouds swept in from the northwest fast!

Within only a moment or two it seemed, they covered half the sky.

At that point i hurried inside to check the radar and see what was coming.  It was a long line of thunderstorms stretching all across southern Ontario, moving souheast.  We're located  about halfway between the city of Owen Sound and the 'N' of Newmarket.

Within minutes the last of the light late afternoon sky was vanishing to the south.

The dark and stormy clouds were rolling over the entire sky.

At this point the rain began and quickly became a heavy downpour with thunder and lightning that continued for an hour or more.  I retreated inside.  I actually lightened some of thes photos trying to capture what I really saw.

Linking to:


  1. We had the same weather system blow through here.

    It had been years since I'd seen skies that dark in the daytime.

  2. Great pictures of a very scary sky.

  3. Wow - very dramatic!

  4. Wow - those skies really look dark and stormy. Glad there wasn't any damage from the storm.

  5. Skies are dark and scary.....great photographs.

  6. Thanks for taking the photos - most people would have just run for cover! Dramatic stuff.

  7. These skies are fantastic.......would be great to see in person......

    Happy weekend!

  8. Wow. Nice. One of my favorite things to photograph is thunderstorm clouds. We don't get a lot of them here, which probably sharpens my appreciation for them. And that is also one of the things I LOVED about the Midwest--SO many great thunderstorms.

  9. Great stormy sky shots. I guess being inside would be the safe place to be with that kind of weather coming in.
