Rain, Rain, Here to Stay...

Ok so most of you know how much i LOVE LOVE LOVE the rain & thunderstorms! Well today it had been rather gloomy & the clouds have been rather FANTASTIC lately! And yesterday i attempted to take a walk with my camera and i must say i was disappointed in myself as it stopped working because i FORGOT to change the battery... Yes i was rather upset with myself. Anyways... so tonight i was all ready battery charged, umbrella in hand(in case it started pouring, which it did), & off i ventured into the neighborhood... I loved the layers upon layers of clouds! All different colors & sizes... FUN!

And below near my house there is an area over grown woods its a VERY small part but had these very interesting looking flowers... so i thought i would share!

To me the clouds looked like a mountain or like they were covering a mountain & i found it very soothing...

And who doesn't love going for a walk with your camera just to have it POUR down rain!!!
I know that it may seem like sarcasm but i must say that i feel my calling might be as a storm photographer... lol... i love the danger & the natural beauty of it. Plus its challenging to me & I love myself a challenge. Anyways i just love this green with the white & the rain in the background... which i must say that i didnt even catch the rain until i uploaded the photo! So of course i was EVEN more pleased with this shot... Definitely my favorite of the bunch. So anyways hope you all enjoyed because i know i had a TERRIFIC walk even though i my pants were drenched by the time that i made it home!
Happy Torrential Thursday!!

welcome to my way of life, Ireland is fairly often wet. I have learned to like cloudscapes, they sometimes set off the landscape

Oh sure, blame the RAIN for your wet pants. (That's your story and you are sticking with it, right?) hahaaaa

looks like we've BOTH had some awesome cloud days recently! I love storm clouds! Nice shots! You are brave being out there in the rain. I think I'd be too nervous about my camera :\
