Living in Florida, we get lots of sunny days. This time of the year, it is normal for what starts out as a sunny day to suddenly change to black, threatening clouds, as the cool sea breezes collide over land
with hot air from the west. When that happens, it's time to run for cover as the effects can be fast and violent. The last place you want to find yourself is on the beach as we live in an area fondly known as "Lightening Capitol of the World". Every year we read of people who are struck with lightening and often do not survive. On this day, we quickly ran for our car as the clouds rolled in. I was happy to get a few shots of the storm.
I tried to capture that moment when the clouds roll in with the azure water quickly turning dark.
Thanks for reading my blog today....hope you have a great week. Oh, by the way....please pin it!
When I spend time in the Smoky Mountains, I start many of my days on the porch, with a cup of coffee. It's a special time of day as the sun streams in over the mountains and starts to burn off the protective layer of "smoke" from the night before.
It's just me, my coffee, and this old dogwood tree that sits in our yard. A very nice way to start the day.
Soon the sun will rise over the mountain tops and light will stream in behind the tree. My little special moment of the morning is gone and it is time to start my day.
