Sunrise, Sunset and a Storm


Sunrise earlier this week.  Such glorious colour,  I just had to capture it!


 Above and below, the waning colours of the day as dusk envelops the sky.



Wednesday was a hot one, with a high of 25 C (our hottest day so far this year), and then, last night, a whopping storm blew in from the west.  Some areas of the city got hail, but we saw only a little lightning, felt a lot of wind, and saw torrents of rain.  Continuous thunderings were heard overhead as the clouds rolled in. (above and below, the storm clouds)


Today is sunny and breezy with a scattering of cumulous clouds floating overhead.  Weather is amazing.  It can change in minutes.  It keeps one looking upwards for what will come next.

Looking up is what we do at Sky Watch Friday.

Morning and evening skies are beautiful, but my favorite one is the last one with the blue sky and big white clouds.

I like the effect of clouds that look like embers in the sky over rooftops. Very dramatic captures. :)
