  1. WOW PATTY. EVEN THOUGH THESE SKIES ARE OMINOUS THERE IS CERTAINLY BEAUTY IN THE PHOTOS. HOPE IT WASN’T A BAD STORM. XXOO

  2. Love the photos!!! (Manassas Bull Run Battlefield, right?)

  3. LOL – I know those “cloud people” — believe it or not — our flight on Monday from Cleveland was literally flying right below those black ominous clouds. Getting under them was another story all together. Had a young Marine going off to boot camp who had never flown and he looked at me and said, “I’m an adrenaline junkie” …… Trust me, it gave me comfort – ROFL However the weird part was to look out the plane’s windows and literally see those clouds right on top of us. These are, as always from you, beautiful photos.

  4. How beautiful! The contrast between the sunny part and the storm are so gorgeous!

  20. Thank you all for leaving such nice comments as always!
    The only thing I did to my photos above was add a border and my name, thanks to Pixlr. Nothing else.
    It was thrilling to be driving down the road with those dark ominous clouds on one side and bright skies on the other.
    It hardly rained at all.
    Mother Nature is so amazing!
