Most Spectacular Clouds on the Lake so Far

Came across these photos I took a few years ago of storm clouds one evening. In our  7 years of living on the lake, we have seen some incredible storms and jaw-dropping skies but this one definitely stands out as one of the best. The sunset shining under the storm front made for an eerie and stunning spectacle as the leading edge dropped down like the fingers of a giant hand. Beauty and the Beast, with beautiful sunset colours combined with an ominous and brooding sky.

Photos to follow are not retouched at all.

Note the intense and sudden wind ripples on the water.

Last Night’s Sunset and This Morning’s Snowstorm

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailors take warning”.
After growing up with lots of sailing in my life, I can attest that this saying is usually true. However, after last evening’s stunning sunset, I certainly would not want to be sailing in the snow that was flying this morning!

Photo below is of same tree as photo above. Ah, the difference a day can make.

This tree you may recognize from this post.

You may recall on my very first post back in March (here), I was kind of bragging about how warm it was and how we were skipping spring this year and going straight for summer. Well, joke is on me now! :-/
