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.
that is one angry sky.ReplyDelete
We had the same weather system blow through here.ReplyDelete
It had been years since I'd seen skies that dark in the daytime.
Scary but beautiful skies!ReplyDelete
Great pictures of a very scary sky.ReplyDelete
Wow - very dramatic!ReplyDelete
Wow - those skies really look dark and stormy. Glad there wasn't any damage from the storm.ReplyDelete
Skies are dark and scary.....great photographs.ReplyDelete
Thanks for taking the photos - most people would have just run for cover! Dramatic stuff.ReplyDelete
These skies are fantastic.......would be great to see in person......ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Great stormy sky shots. I guess being inside would be the safe place to be with that kind of weather coming in.ReplyDelete
