Strange Summer Light

This week's Skywatch Friday post captures a couple of strange skies on one evening back in July - these photos are cropped, but in no other way edited, and were taken from our back deck. The colors and clouds really were this strange.

  2. The clouds and light are amazing! The second photo looks like it could be the cover of a thriller novel. You sure do get a lot of different weather out there!

  22. How dramatic! I feel like that I'm seeing scenes of a film in that landscape, but this is real.  Though dark tone, I still think the grayish-blue or purplish sky is beautiful.
