  1. Wow--I'll say--very dramatic--but stunning, too!

  2. Spectacular shots!! I love the way you captured the silhouette of the tree against the incredible stormy clouds!! A really wonderful set of shots!!!! ~Janine XO

  3. Wonderful, compelling pictures! What sort of tree is that, do you know? It looks like a old, old tree that has been pollarded (if that's the correct term) many times. Beautiful!!

  4. We have similar skies on our blogs tonight. Moody and brooding.

  5. Merisi, I very much like stormy weather and your nice photos very well describe it.
    Have a good day!

  6. I wonder if you appreciate that you have mananaged to capture an example of developing mammatus clouds there, Merisi? Very nice indeed :-)

  7. A Brush with Color,
    wait until you see my next post,
    it got even better! ;-)

    Sniffles and Smiles,
    thank you, Janine! :-)

    Vicki Lane,
    this is indeed an old, old pear tree! I shall try to remember to take a picture of the tree in different light, to show you its beauty.

    moody and brooding,
    yes! I shall come and see yours! :-)

    thank you, una buona giornata anche a te!

    I have more images to share, the sky was changing very rapidly last night!

    Wandring Star,
    thank you for the information!
    I have more of these clouds,
    soon! :-)

  8. Love your clouds photos, Merisi!
    Vienna is always so beautiful in your photos, I forgot it rains there too. Glad to learn they are called mammatus clouds.

  9. Gathering clouds tend to make me want to head for an open door for a hot cup of tea, and maybe another chapter of the book in my bag.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
