Storm Gems

I’m not sure if I’ve shared this before, but I’m a storm lover, fanatic, stalker, etc.  When a storm is brewing, I feel compelled to snap as many good shots as possible before the gates open! 

They intrigue me with their raw beauty and power.  When I was a wee lass, they used to frighten me a bit, but excitement was mixed with that fear because I wanted to understand them.  As an adult, I equally understand and respect them. 

The photos below are what I captured last week after a major storm had dumped torrential rain on the area.  It was the tail end of it, yet the beauty was stunning!

Taking pictures of the sky is a minor hobby of mine, so you can imagine how happy I was to see this beautiful display of hues in the sky yesterday evening.

It took three tries to get what I felt was the perfect shot.
