Grey


Another
rainy evening
in Vienna

Grey skies,
impending
rain

You know
where to
find refuge

before
the downpour
hits

  8. I don't believe it. Maybe the Leatherlips curse is widespread this year?

  9. Well, living in the San Francisco, especially in and near eternally foggy Pacifica, I don't really mind gray skies. Usually, they clear up ( briefly ) for a bit of blue sky.

    I love that cheery red umbrella heading in for coffee!



    At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
    ( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

  14. Oh weh, nichts als Regen, erst der harte Winter und dann der verregnete Frühling. Aber Deine Bilder sind zauberhaft und ich schicke Dir heute morgen ein wenig von unserem blitzblauen Himmel und der warmen Junisonne.... Einen schönen Freitag für Dich

  15. Nice for grey skies....all will soon clear and the return of Blue Skies will prevail.
    I was wondering what the tents were for?

  16. Eaglesbrother,
    thank you for your kind comment and wishes!
    You are right, there's a break in the cloud cover now, patches of blue skies, the sun can't be hiding that much longer. ;-)

    The tents were put up for a fair. I passed through the square late in the evening, I did not check out what it was all about. This being Vienna, it may have been a food fair. ;-)

  17. Oh, you have really captured the foreboding atmosphere there!

  18. Very nice examples of stratus, Merisi. I have always found it tricky to get good pictures of.

  19. I love the gray and black contrast. So lovely and cool looking. Regarding your request - great minds think alike; I just needed to finish my feeble attempts at editing.
