A picture

This Monday has been a day of clouds. Every now and then the sun would find an opening and blaze down for a few seconds before darting behind clouds as thick as wood smoke.

As Jilda prepared lunch, I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things. As I pulled out of our driveway a spit of ran speckled my windshield and I flipped on the wipers. After a few swishes, the dry windshield made them squawk like a hoarse duck. 

A few miles from our house, I passed a pasture with a pond and yellow flowers blooming. The clouds in the distance looked threatening but experience has taught me that these particular clouds are more for show.

No one was behind me, so I pulled to the side of the road. A quick check in the rearview confirmed that it was still all clear behind, so I stepped over to the fence and snapped a few frames. I waited a few minutes to see if the sun made an appearance, but it didn't want to cooperate so I shot the cloudy picture. 

It looked better than I thought it would and I didn't get any today that was better so there.

My blog tonight is about a picture.

    Those clouds look so threatening, yet beautiful!!

  2. Ive always liked to snap a photo of storm clouds then sit and study them. You see things in a photo that you didnt see with your eyes. They are beautiful.
    We have had all rain with peeks of sunshine here too.

  3. Great picture ! Those clouds do look threatening, but glad to hear that they really weren't.

  4. Love the picture which reminds me of Dutch paintings from the 1700s

  5. Not much scenery like that around these parts, but then we also don't have any roads where we could pull over without starting a traffic jam.

  6. The picture is dramatic. We were being threatened with rain all day yeaterday too. It spit a few sprinkles every now and then but the rain never came.

  7. Clouds always make for a dramatic photo. Lovely contrast.

  8. A little somber picture but very lovely. I like how the fence is holding the content of the image. It almost feel like everything is under control.
    Hugs, Julia

  9. Love that shot! It looks like you could reach up and grab those clouds. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, your pic is quite blog worthy!
