Skywatch Friday after the storm

Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning.
George Carlin


My choice for SkyWatch Friday is the scene from my front door after a summer storm in August June, late evening just before sundown. The sky seemed to hold a beautiful promise for the coming day.

See more photos at SkyWatch Friday, here. You will want to join in the fun.

It is quite beautiful. It looks like a storm has just cleaned the sky.

I like this before I enlarged it, but I swear I almost felt like I was there when I enlarged it.

What a great view to have right outside your front door. All I see is the house across the narrow street... okay and maybe some sky above it. :-)

A nice picture. Did the storm thin out the leaves - the trees look quite bare.

The calm before the stoem is so deceptive. It looks so serene.
