Stormy night by maggiemae

Stormy night

Canada Day - they coped with the low cloud though the airshow was cancelled, people still flooded in to Parliament Hill for the celebrations. We watched from the safety of our apartment and a big TV.
Later there was a concert downtown but in our apartment there was a real party feel with so many young and trendy people enjoying.
The weather looked like this at 8pm

Three good things;
1 A wonderful day just observing.
2. Missed the fireworks - too late for us oldies but we were happy!
3. Son and family came in - don’t know if they enjoyed - most of these young people were single!
Such a stormy sky -- love the many shades and hues of blue !

it cleared for us enough here so that i was able to shoot the fireworks downtown from my apartment's balcony. but there was a band of cloud that the zoom didn't catch above the CN tower. now it's cloudy although there's a hazy sunshine. as this oldie tend to go to bed at midnight, i was able to watch and shoot the fireworks. i love that new watermark/signature. aces!

Interesting clouds. Did you get rain?

Beautiful color and stormy look to those clouds. Spectacular especially on black. Your new signature shows up well on this one although I noticed it on your portrait of your granddaughter the other day. What I didn't notice because it didn't show up as well was what's underneath your signature "the world to you". I like that
