Wrath of the gods

My passion for severe weather was satisfied the other day during what I can only call a true orgy of clouds just before a magnificent thunderstorm.

Grey Sky I

The colours, the shapes, the way the wind moulded them before my eyes... a real feast - and I thank the gods for it.

Grey Sky II

By gods I mean Mother Earth and her weather leprechauns, elves and pixies... of course ;)


These photos don't do justice to the event itself... but I had lots of fun taking them. I was especially glad to be able to capture the faint flicker of a lighthouse caught in the middle of that raging storm.

Green flick(e)r of hope...

A green flicker of hope for those who feel lost and scared when witnessing these "arguments" from up above. Very faint and distant from where I stood... but there, without a doubt. There's always one of those, no matter how dire the straits we may find ourselves in... you just have to really look for it.

Mystified by the misty morning

I couldn't believe my eyes...


... when I opened the drapes of my hotel room window...

... I could have sworn I had walked into some sort of Twilight Zone...

Golden mist

... but I finally managed to go for my camera - and now I can relive that morning whenever I look at these. Lucky me! ;)
