And then the rain began...

in GEMSlast month

We have had quite a few rainy and stormy days since last week, and this is how it all began...

Before the Storm
Stormy Weather

And then the Storm began

I have made these photos during a motorbike ride around town last week.

When I came back home from the ride a thunderstorm began shortly after and it was stormy and rainy until three days ago, when the sun finally won her fight against the clouds.

It was late afternoon and the setting sun has lit the storm clouds beautifully.

By the way, the little black spots in the zoomed images are no dust or sensor spots, but they are birds - many birds enjoyed their afternoon in the sky before they had to hide from the storm 😊

The day before yesterday was the first day on which I could sit on my motorbike again and make a little ride around to see if everything is still okay ... and it was 😉


Storm-Sun

Come and marvel at the sunset!
Lo-a storm is brooding near,-
All the thirsty world imploring,
In a mood akin to fear.

Like a beaker in her fingers
Holds the world the valley high,
Mountain-lipped and cañon-hearted,
To the largess of the sky.

But the sky, capricious ever,
Hides the storm unbroken still;
And the pallid, sun-born nectar
Doth the beaker brimming fill.

See the weirdly golden essence
Lurk along, the shades between,
'Till it drowns and rolls above them
In triumphant glare of sheen.

Beautiful and terrifying at the same time are these clouds.
The shots as ever - awesome!
I like the watermark very much.

Thank you Neli, I appreciate your kind compliment very much 😊

You like my watermark? That's just my signature, but thank you that you like it 😆

But:
Don't think you can use it to sign a contract or for payments, because to be valid one small thing is missing and only I know what it is 🤣🤣🤣 lol

Thank you Neli, have a good night and a wonderful Sunday 🌞

About the watermark I meant the hive logo on your first photo. I must admit I did not see it before, although you have it each time. I must change my glasses LOL

Aha, and I really thought you are the only person in the world who likes my signature 🤣🤣🤣

I have downloaded this Hive logo months ago from a blog I cannot remember. The rest is Photoshop: I have a Photoshop template with the texts and the Hive logo file which I adapt like I need it.
If I can remember where I found the image I will tell you.

Wow! Very dramatic storm clouds!! They are like giants flying on the sky waiting to attack some unfortunate travelers! Would love to watch the storm and hear the sound of thunders!!

Very nice shots of these giants in the sky.

Good morning dear @kaminchan 😄

Thanks a lot that you like the clouds and for your nice comment 😁

I have watched this cloud formation for quite a while during my ride until I found a good place to take some photos.
I don't mind being in a thunderstorm when I am in a car, but on a motorbike it's rather wet 🤣 but I also like to listen to the storm, thunder and the rain 😄

Thank you very much again, I wish you a wonderful Sunday 🌞

Fantastic photos of amazing storm clouds.

I envy your rainy weather, here we didn't have proper rain for weeks and it is really too hot for my taste 😫. Yesterday was 37.8C and today 34C.

I am glad that you and your bike are OK.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

Cheers!BEER

Good morning my friend @cezary-io 😊

Thank you very much that you like the photos - it was even better when I was there 😄

For a few days we had more rain than usually in a few weeks I think, but it is hot again, although luckily not much over 30C 😁

Have a wonderful Sunday 🌞

WOW! Wonderful clouds with gorgeous sunlight! Yeah! It's great that "the sun finally won her fight against the clouds." The clouds are really huge and have amazing shapes.

The scenery of the mountains and the green field is also beautiful. It looks peaceful...

Ah! Peaceful before thunderstorm..... I would certainly fear if I stand over there!

Beautiful photos, as always! Thanks so much for sharing. ;)

Good morning @tangmo,

thank you so much for your kindness and the nice words you have found 😄

The clouds were really amazing and then we have had quite some days with daily thunderstorms and lots of rain, but now it is hot again 😉

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday 🌞

You are very lucky to have had rain ...
@johannpiber 😊
It is cloudy and warm here and it just rained. Your photos are like from another dimension .. The clouds are unbelievably beautiful ... I believe you are enjoying now after the rain and storm. 🤗

Hello @suzana72,

you said it right - we have had rain, because today is the 4th day without it and it's very hot here, at least too hot for me 😉

Thank you very much for your kind words, @suzana72, the storm Cloud was amazing, in reality even more than in the photos.

I hope the rain cools the air a bit down for you and I wish you a great Sunday and a wonderful week ahead. @suzana72 😊

I believe you are too hot for you @johannpiber☀️😊
And this day was a short storm and a little rain ... It was nicely cold but now it's warm again ... Too hot ... Maybe it will rain more ?!
I would look forward to it!
You're welcome @johannpiber😊
Thank you ... I hope you had a nice Sunday and I wish you wonderful week ahead, too @johannpiber 😊

The Sunday was nice hot, @suzana72, and it seems now in the evening it gets even warmer 😅

But we shouldn't moan about the heat - soon it will be Autumn and a little bit later we will moan because it's too cold 😉

Have a nice evening and a wonderful week ahead @suzana72 🌞

The situation is similar here .... So we are waiting for autumn @johannpiber 😊

It has already arrived to me ... as if the days are already autumn ... morning, the sound of the wind, the smells ... only the warmth reminds me that it is August.

Haha ... yes, it's hard to please people ... Moaning is the easiest,😉
it's the hardest to enjoy every season ... Everything changes and everything is beautiful in its own way.🤗

Thank you very much @johannpiber
Have a nice evening and wonderful week ☀️😊

The rain i don't mind it's great for the environment just don't like when it gets to cold , rain and cold makes me want to sleep more 😊 and the clouds you captured look really fierce.

I hate rain and cold too - today I got soaked on my motorcycle, but I didn't mind because it was not cold 😉
Cold rainy days are days to stay in bed, I agree 👍

Thanks a lot that you like the cloud - it was better in nature though 😉

I don't mind the rain but this week it's really been a pain as it has rained most of the week and always when your busy and are on a schedule but it is what it is and tonight i can relax with a nice red wine and catch up on hive 😊

We had such weather last week and this week we have our daily rain or thunderstorm, just like it has begun five minutes ago to rain ⛈️

Hopefully the weekend will be a bit more constant nice for you and for me 🌞

Dramatic in nature, clouds puffed up dancing across the sky menacingly taking charge of everything beneath.

How nature dictates! We only listen when the thunder rolls through the mountains, beating drums echoing off the mountainside, enough to scare the dead awake...

Brilliant photography capturing events as clouds dance off in the sunset Johann, enjoyed the poetry you have added.

It was really an amazing scene up there in the sky and I was so happy that I have found that place where I even had a reasonable nice foreground to show the dimensions of this cloud formation.

Thank you so very much for the nice words you have found for my photos, Joan, I wish you a great Sunday evening and a wonderful week ahead 🤗🌞
