On the way home from work i watched the front brew, and so i ducked off down the side lanes to get a better view. One and a half hours later i finally made it home, and I had managed to get some beautys, so here are a few. This one looking up the road towards the mountains.

I do not always get to check my site every day , so i apologise for not commenting immediately,but i do generally check in 3-5 times a week so your comments are always viewed and appreciated. Thank you for checking out my photos, please give constructive criticism as i want to learn from you wonderful people.

A very 'threatening' sky , well seen and taken.

@MaryP: Yes it threatened but passed over quickly so got the before and after shots.

Great shot. Love the mix of clouds and blue sky and the power lines receding into the distance.

@Charles: Yes this has worked well, in two days i have posted one with the powerlines again but it is very different.

A lovely, dramatic scene - one of my favorite times - as the storm moves in the clouds are always so incredible. Well captured in this image.
