What a difference 180º makes. These two photos were taken at about 8:30 last night, the first toward the west, the second toward the east. They were taken ten minutes apart.




  1. Truly incredible. Beautiful photographs. I don’t know if there is anything that I enjoy more than clouds.

  2. I also love clouds, for many different reasons. It’s at this time of year here that we really get a show of clouds, usually in the late afternoon to evening.

  4. Now that’s a dramatic sky Terry, hard to believe you can get that much of change in color and mood in that short of time and position, thats what I love about photographing the natural world. Thanks for sharing that’s really neat.

  5. Late summer and late afternoon around here can be dramatic. Another reason why I spend as much time outside as I possibly can.

  6. My that is really lovely. We’ve been cloud watching as well – last night it was with my mom. Thanks for sharing these.

  7. In the first set of clouds I see faceless angst…but, it’s wearing a baseball cap.

    In the second photo I only see a chipmunk applauding a Christmas tree. I have no idea what the tree must have done to deserve the accolades.

    Beautiful photos, by the way.

  8. aullori,
    Yes, it’s the prime time for cloud watching. I’ll be doing a lot of that, all the while hoping there will be a little rain in there somewhere.

  9. Pinhole,
    I think the cap softens the whole scene, don’t you?

    I’m never surprised to see a chipmunk around here, but although they don’t usually applaud, one’s never sure just what they will do.

  11. thisiswhyimhot,
    Thanks for the kind words. I’ve been photographing the things I love to see in the part of the country that I love to live in. I’m always happy when someone else likes it too! There’s a very beautiful world out there beyond the cities!
