This was the perfect weekend for photographing clouds where I live. The minute I wrote that I thought, wow, what an exciting life you live Carver when the weekend highlight is having great clouds to photograph.It may not be very exciting but I do love clouds and we had plenty of them all this weekend. The morning each day this weekend began with mostly blue skies. Then the clouds became more dense, afternoon showers, then some clearing by sunset.
Saturday when I pulled into the grocery store parking lot I could see people moving a little faster as if they were trying to beat the storm. I on the other hand stood in the middle of the parking lot shooting the clouds before I even went into the store to buy my groceries.
Even taking the time for a parking lot photo shoot, I managed to get home, unload my groceries, and shoot some more clouds in my back yard before the rain.
It seems like a bonus when the rain stops just in time for the sunset to fill up the sky before dark.
It's so pleasant too for the cycle to begin again the next day. If it's going to be as hot as it has been this summer, having frequent showers makes a huge difference to the vegetation. So far we have had enough rain this summer to keep the reservoir, which provides my city with water, from being depleted again.
