Skywatch Friday #50 - Blustery Day

This was yesterday on my way home from work. All of the pictures were taken within an hour start to finish - before going into the grocery store and then the drive home, and within 6 miles (10k) of each other. What the pictures don't reflect is the stiff wind that was blowing, especially in the first photo.

Threatening skies for sure - facing east

Facing north

Here comes the rain

The back edge of the front - is that blue sky?

Really terrific shots! Unfortunately, the skies have been the wrong colors the past few days -- haven't they?

Have a great weekend!

One thing about the gray skies in Washington is that they seem to pass by very quickly...so hopefully the blue skies did reveal themselves!

I love a good storm and your top photo looks great. I also really like "Here commes the rain"

Our Washington skies do change quickly.
A great series of photos.

This weather goes from one end of the country to the other. After Saturday, we are supposed to have a week of rain. Nice shots! Thanks for visiting my Journal.

Neat shots. I do love the clouds though. They have been spectacular. That same day the sunset was so lovely but just at the horizon. I always rush down the hill and to Starbird Rd overlooking the Freeway and shoot a magnificent sunset. But from my house all you see in the sky is a faint color trace so you wouldn't know the was a sunset. This has been everyday for the past few weeks. MB
