I spent the afternoon watching a storm move across the horizon. I’m drawn to storms, especially when they are over the water. The churning sea and the swirling clouds are beautiful, even though they pose danger. I don’t think it’s depressing or sad. On the contrary, it’s very much alive!
It makes me pensive to watch a storm, but it doesn’t necessarily mean I turn to dark thoughts that mirror the skies. Usually, it just inspires a creative force, something that makes me think in new ways. Sometimes I turn to writing poetry or stories. Other times, I just let my mind wander. In a strange way, the storms energize me and leave me refreshed, like the scene that played out before this picture — the day went from the depth of darkness, to a broad happy rainbow.

A rainbow is the reward after the fascinating light show that often is a storm. Great photo.
thanks! it’s definitely a cherry on top.
Beautiful! I love watching storms as well!
Good morning Marla, thank you for following my blog. I have come here to see yours and the first picture I see is your rainbow picture! That was a great shot. We see rainbows here from time to time and an occasional double rainbow – I am still waiting to see one with my camera! Great site you have here; I am following to catch some more!
Thanks! and welcome!
Totally with you on watching the storms. Something very invigorating and yes, inspiring. Beautiful photo, Maria.
Thank you — I’m kind of getting in the mood for a good storm with all this commentary here.
Here in Arizona we are known for our Summer Storms called Monsoons. To watch them fire up…sort of speak…is so much fun. The clouds in the sky left from the storms moisture…then make the most unbelievable sunsets. Great idea for depth! I am still struggling with my idea!
Oh, I’d loved to see that develop! Maybe you can get a picture!
Oh I have some… I will have to share. It’s going back into the depths of picture files to find them… HA HA HA
That’s an interesting take on how storms energize and refresh you. Beautiful picture by the way.
Thank you. It’s like the electricity in the storm charges me!
Ah I get it now! I am a little bit scared of the storm 🙂
Great shot. Beautiful!
What a beautiful picture!
Ah, rainbow and sea. What a nice picture 🙂
I love watching storms and rain, too :))
me, too! all day! I watched this particular storm since it started way off at sea.
I know the feelings of watching storm clouds gather. Thanks for the follow!
Nice picture. I love rainbows.
me too. I don’t look for them like I did as a kid. I should change that.
My grandmother thinks I’m crazy for sky watching; especially during a storm. So lucky to see a rainbow! Lately any I see never compare to the ones of my youth.
oh my, no! not crazy 🙂
Beautiful. And yes, a storm is something amazing. I love watching storms.
I agree. It is something powerful and wonderful.
