Return of the clouds

Clouds are back!! After half a year of blue skies it's exciting to see clouds.
Now we will start to see the dramatic sunsets again too. Yay!
In this photo the sun has just dropped behind the next ridge, at 6:21 pm.

Take your choice of hundreds of different sky posts at the weekly SkyWatch.

Beautiful shot of the golden sunset with dark clouds. We had such clouds in Mumbai till August(end of monsoon). Now it's clear skies.

My sky hangout is here

WOW, wonderful sunset. Beautiful colors. Hey, the clouds aren't bad either after a long hot summer.

So pretty. All my June shots of Israel are blue, blue, blue. Clouds are what give the sky variety. This is a lovely sunset shot. May it rain for you whenever you are indoors (so you don't get wet).

Sunsets are pretty but clouds are dramatic. The best of both worlds here.

Isn't it interesting how the light changes with the seasons? This is a lovely shot of the sunset with dark clouds. Come see my simple little shot over at my Photologue. :D

Beautiful shot...Happy SWF! :)

Gorgeous - sunset, colors, composition. Very nice shot.

Beautiful. Much as I love clear blue skies, I'm missing the interest of having clouds around, particularly the sunrises and sunsets. Its really difficult to find an interesting Sky Watch shot when you've got clear blue sky.

Dina, we got rain today! It's supposed to stay for the weekend, so are gardens will be happy. Happy plants! Happy trees! Yes, okay, I'm nuts. 6^)

Petrea said...

Rain-bringers. We love them!

Dirk said...

We are lucky to see some blue sky, but it's otherwise in Jerusalem. Very nice picture!

A sunset or sunrise is always so beautiful and such a welcome sight. Yours is very beautiful and a promise for a fine day! Shabbat Shalom!

gorgeous shot!

There's always light farther away. Even behind clouds.
Sometimes/somewhere else, they are a blessing.

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful shot. Great Nature and Weather.

Beautiful golden sky over the "golden city". I love Jerusalem (and Israel). Have been there five times (four in Jerusalem) - last time 6 weeks in March this year.

John said...

This is a great shot!
Fantastic colors.

The cloud pattens and the crimson sky looks wonderful.
