After the Storm - Day 12


Yesterday was a wild, crazy weather day.  The rains came down in sheets and severe thunderstorm warnings went up.  It was stressful listening to what might happen and to be prepared.  Weather alerts by email, weather alerts on Facebook and on TV.  Tornado warnings south of our area.  Flooding in many places and roads closed. Thankfully we are okay and not affected.  Still it was stressful being on alert and I had already been having a some emotional days.  I am grateful for the weather forecasters though.

What a difference a day makes!  I woke up feeling much more relaxed.  I read some magazines on my Ipad before it started getting light out.  My bathroom faces east and I love watching sunrises out the window.  Today was extra special because it was like the universe gave us a reward for such a wild, wet, weather day.

I love taking pictures.  These pictures were taken with my iPad Pro that I use for art.  I love photographing trees and clouds along with sunrises and sunsets.  Here are a couple I shot this morning.



When I see beautiful sunrise pictures I think God made the Earth and then she painted it.  



I'm blogging in April with Effy Wild. You can find more information here.

Beautiful pictures. Weather warnings are scary, this winter here feels like it just doesn’t wanna go...

I'm so sorry for all that stress. The reward of post-storm sunrise is always so, so welcome, though, eh? Gorgeous images. <3

Thank you Nolwenn, each sunrise is a bit different. I'm waiting to see one pop up right over the mountain. There was snow above 5,000 feet and more is expected Sunday. But on Tuesday it might be 80 degrees. Crazy weather. Thank you for replying.

Such beautiful photos. I love taking sunrise/sunset photos too. And trees...LOVE to take pictures of them. Birds or whatever other wild life I'm lucky enough to capture. The rear camera lens on my tablet has gotten scratched somehow and I can't buff it out. But it's also almost 4 yrs old now and we're waiting for the new models to come out.
I understand the panic that goes with crazy weather. Once upon a time I'd revel in it, not so much these days.
