Thunder clouds by maggiemae

Thunder clouds

A wonderful thunderstorm came through and the sound reverberated all around the sky! I just love it and hung out the window, listening. The clouds then rolled on to the south and I could see in amongst these ones, the occasional flash of lightening!

Last day of the year for me - what is going to be my New Years Photo?
Just wonderful! Such a dramatic sky!

amazing clouds! Really nice.

Woah Maggie - I missed this - thank goodness for PP!

I would be captivated by that storm as well. Those clouds look awesome. We are on top of a mountain and sometimes when the storms hit here it feels like the thunder and lightning are being produced directly overhead. But I love listening to the wind in the trees- even when the thunder claps make my heart pound twice as hard and my heart beat accelerate!
January 3rd, 2013  
Love that sky!!! Great image!
January 5th, 2013  
Beautiful in a scary way. Great job capturing the essence of the storm.
