Britain looks a bit this way at the moment. Heavy ponderous skies.
Its lovely watching them go over or break up though.
I like both of these pictures. Thanks for sharing them.

Lovely moody photos, thank you for sharing! (I could almost like rainclouds now LOL)

I was taking photos from the car tonight on the way home too. I've finally gotten the knack of not getting a close-up of a telephone pole...

Loved your post!

Hello Gill. Thanks for visiting my blog. You have some interesting comments and things here. I guess it is getting towards that time when the snow will soon cover everything and you will need to snuggle in with some hot chocolate in the evenings by the fire. Sounds lovely!!

Suzanne said...

I like your stormy sky shots. They are quiet dramatic. Happy SWF.

Sally said...

Hello again! Your pictures have a mixture of cloud... the predominant cloud is stratocumulus... it's like a blanket of cumulus clouds which are the puffy clouds and often mixed with cumulus as you have here. The bottom cloud has a predominant cumulus cloud in the lower center. Great capture. I bet it was wet.

Jack and Joann said...

It was a dark and stormy night.....

That's a good lead in to a story. Will you continue the story next Sky Watch Night.
