The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

Another love note from God...

SKY WATCH FRIDAY time! Welcome all sky fans!!! I truly appreciate your visit and comments. I might not have time to respond to you, but I will try my best to visit!!!

Our hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy

Thanks, also,to Dot and Tom, who were instrumental in the success of this blogging event. You should definitely come fly with us! With severe weather season just around the corner... I am reminiscing about some of my more enjoyable and photographable storm encounters. The pictures below capture an exciting day back in June 2008. It started with wonderful towers going up all over the place. The clouds were barely moving, except climbing up into the sky. We had a brilliant rainbow for a time, but then, there was this... a wonderfully sunset-lit tower rising to my southeast, catching the light brilliantly and radiating with a glow of pink and salmon. I stood in awe of the beauty for some time before I noticed just above my head was an amazing patch of mammatus (my FAVORITE!!), which were also carrying the colors of the glorious sunset. After being drawn to that for some time... and taking a bunch of pictures, I went in to eat.After dinner, I came out to discover that this beautiful tower of splendor was still there, but now it was firing every few seconds with a magnificent lavender electrical storm... all seemingly contained within the confines of this beautiful structure.Speak Lord, your servant is listening.
