Photo of the Week...Clouds

Since our sky's have been overcast lately and not very interesting, except for the snow flakes, that seem to be daily, and the fact that I still don't have my own camera, I grabbed this shot from my files.
This was the calm before the storm and I mean a storm... it was snapped at a place on Black River known to all as "Chiggerville". Notice the black cloud in the upper left, well right after this picture was taken, mother nature released her furry...one of our Ozark storms...everyone went scurrying for cover...another fun day at the river came to an end.
This got me day dreaming about summer time...trips to the river for swimming or just hanging out....enjoying the warmth of the sun...camping, yea sitting around a fire, drink of choice in hand....I can almost be there!!! Leisure time!!!
I'm not coping well with this year's winter weather....can't seem to get adjusted to the cold. Our past several winters have been rather mild compared to this year. The temps have been below normal and we have had more snowy days than I can count. Don't get me wrong, I love the area where I live...you know...in Missouri, just hang around and weather changes quickly and often.....Have a great day....Shelly


  1. Hi Shelly. The sky looked very similar here too yesterday. We had the hint of a blue sky then in rolled the clouds and we had a really heavy hail storm, enough the whiten the floor briefly. Brrrr roll on spring and warmer days.

  2. That cloud does look quite menacing...lovely cloud formations just the same. :)

  3. I think our clouds look the same, imagine that. Yes I am looking forward to camping as we haven't done alot of it lately..Great pic always..Judy

  4. Those storm clouds can be so dramatic, can't they? I love to sit and watch them move in just before the sky splits open and the rain begins to fall.
