Normally I wouldn't do to similar posts back-to-back, but the weather was perfect for this weeks photo shoot from Carly. She wanted pictures of clouds and we had storms in the area. Some were severe, but none of those were near us. But, they did make for some nice cloud pictures, unfortunately they are from my car, but they turned out okay. No, I was not driving at the time.
Here you can see the tops of the storm, one in the process of growing actually, south and east of my house.
Here is a better view of the same just down the street.
Here is the full view from the end of my subdivision. You can see it is small, but it grew as it moved east.
Here the sky looks dark and ominous, but it wasn't all that bad. It looks worse than it should because the sun is lower in the sky so less light can shine through. We barely got any rain out of this.
I really want to try and get a picture of lightning some time, I just need to find a way to do it without getting killed.
For extra credit we need to show colored clouds. I need to dip in the archives for this one.
Go check out the rest of the photos over at Carly's.
