SkyWatch Friday

And finally after the heat wave the storm arrived. Temperatures dropped from 38C to 19C within minutes. Damage went into millions of Euros and yesterday's storm even took a life. The climate is definitely changing.

My goodness! That was a serious storm!! I wish our temperatures and humidity would ease off, but there seems to be no end in sight!

Incredible storm photos. While we could use the rain, we prefer it be in a more gentle fashion.

Josie: That second photo with the two faces looking down is a classic. It looks like a woman and a man behind her.

I can find the interesting changes
before raining.
I love the third.

@Fishing Guy: I saw the faces and mentioned it to my husband. He did not notice it, he only saw clouds. I wonder if it is a special gift to Sky watchers to see 'art' in the sky.

The weather has changed indeed.
Same here the storm just passed by with a little rain on a rainy season.
Great skies and captures!

Have a nice weekend.
" Happy SkyWatch Friday "

Wat een schitterende luchtfoto's Jossie. Ja die storm bracht weer wat met zich mee hè.
Fijn weekend!

Indrukwekkende luchten, Jossie. 't Is alleen zo jammer dat er zo veel ellende mee gepaard gaat.
Die twee gezichten vielen mij als ervaren SWF-er ook meteen op. :-)
Maak er een mooi weekend van!

Ruth said...

Great capture! But so sorry to hear the sad news.

As we are neighbors I imagine that the storm was the same ! Fortunately we didn't have any damages. Today the sun is shining again (a little) and the temperature is 25°. I like the photo of your cat with the coffee mill in your sidebar !

Great shots! I love storms, however the damage they cause can be enormous. Thunderstorms are my favorite. Hopefully you managed with little to no loss.

I hope this rough weather settles down fast.
