Sky Watch Friday - Thunderstorms


Last Sunday we went to the beach but a big hunderstorm foiled our plans.
The cloud formations after the rain were exciting, though!




We got wet to the skin, just like our poor doggy!

The weather in Austria is kind of subtropical this summer!

WoW! Great cloud formations & shots! I would imagine subtropical is very unusual for Austria!

Janie said...

The clouds are beautiful! Glad you had some compensation for your foiled plans.

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic clouds! Marvelous captures! Have to agree with Janie, at least you got some compensation for your foiled plans!! Hope doggie is feeling better! Have a great weekend!

At least you got some good photos. That should count for something!

Haha..... wie herrlich, am besten der Blick des Hundis... :))) - ich hab erst die Wolken bestaunt, bin langsam runtergescrollt und was sehe ich - diesen himmelhochjauchzendzutodebetrübten herrlichen engelsgleichen Hundeblick... magisch, oh Maria, wie schön, dass es diesen Hund gibt, was? :) Ich hab ihn noch nicht mal persönlich gekrault, aber er rührt mein Herz, der Kleine.... also sie :)... grandios.

Dir einen wunderwundervollen Freitag, bis bald, Deine Kessi

Lovely boiling clouds. There seems to be a lot of thunderstorms about just now, we've even had them here, which is most unusual.

Denise said...

Your little doggie always makes an adorable photo, and I enjoyed your sky shots very much.

Hi Maria:)

Greetings:)

Lovely photos. The situation in Vienna is the same as in Kochi. The rains are heavy here and pouring for the last few days. The road are getting damaged and traveling has become very difficult.

We will have at least 6 months of rain. We are used to it.

Have a nice day Maria:)

The trip gave you some very nice pictures, though, even if you got wet...
Great series.

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Good Morning from the hillsides of NY state where we have had two whole days without thunderstorms!
As you wrote, Maria, the storms leave behind glorious clouds!
I always enjoy your little surprises in your blog... Your dog is adorable! Have a fabulous weekend*

Arija said...

Into each life some rain must fall, at least it is a good oldfashioned summer thunderstorm building. Hope you did not get soaked though.

RuneE said...

That last cloud looked as if it was about to start something...

PS Thank you for the comment - welcome any time :-)

Karen said...

Very cool collection of sky shots...

Sights like those almost make up for your rained out plans :-)
