Wednesday's Sky Before the Rain

Heidi and I went out for a yard walk as the clouds were getting darker.  There was some thunder and lightning while we were out.  There were lots of birds flying around.

I always enjoy taking photos of the sky through flowering plants.  This clematis blooms both early and late summer.

I hope this plane made it to where it was going before the rain came.  It was a good downpour.

There was still a little blue peeking through in the north.

I took some videos trying to get the sound of the thunder, but when I tried putting one in the post, it failed, with a message that that kind of file can't be put in.

  1. What lovely shots. I think a solitary plane like that looks like a shark in water.

  2. I have the same problem with the video files I have taken. I couldn't upload them in either flick'r or youtube. I haven't tried uploading straight to blogspot, though.

  3. That's a cool shot of the plane against the cloudy sky. Have a wonderful weekend!
