Thunderclouds and Summer Rain

Beautiful clouds in the summer sky.

A pleasant warm afternoon, ideal for a stroll through the city!

Suddenly a storm, rolling thunder, cloudbursts!

Pleople hiding from the heavy rain.

Flashing wet colours everywhere.

Beautiful light on the clouds! Maybe that made it worth getting wet.

Ach, donnerwetter! LOL

Beautiful sky and city pictures.
It is hard to live for half of every year with no rain. You are lucky.

Yes, that's what I remember from one of our summers in Austria/Vienna the sudden rain, almost every afternoon:)

What's going on Maria?!!!
Our weather here's the same!
... all week... terrible thunderstorms! I was just on the phone with my daughter and the lightning and thunder were so strong at one point, I threw the phone down and ran upstairs :)

Right now, our backyard plants are 6" underwater!
I love the cooler temperatures though... not a big fan of hot and humid...
so there's an up side to everything~
Take Care, Maria
ps. I enlarged the third picture...just GORGEOUS!

The best part of thunderstorms is the sun's rays shining around the edges of the clouds.
