Rain across the lake

I took this from the car. We were on Highway 155 on the middle bridge going over Lake Palestine. Wish we could have stopped, but as soon as you get of the bridges the view is blocked. I wasn't driving! :)

You got a beautiful shot anyway. My Sky Watch shot was also taken from a moving vehicle. I guess that shows either our photography prowess or the excellent technology of our cameras. Let's go with the former. ;-)

Sharon, lovely view form the car. I hope you weren't behind that wheel though!! :P
Enjoy the weekend!

Carletta said...

You sure can see a storm is brewing!
Great job.
I liked Jo's comment - as teachers I say we stick together with the
photography prowess. ;)

Thank you for sharing!

Great capture, Sharon. Yeah, sometimes it's better to let someone else drive. There are so many wonderful things to see out there. Thanks for sharing.

Rain from a distance is always interesting to see. Since we moved to California it's become a bit of a novelty!

I like the rain, it makes good photos. Lake Palestine? I have to see a map of Texas now...

storyteller said...

It's so hard to capture shots through car windows (or with wind blowing if the window's down), but you did a wonderful job on this photo! Thanks for sharing. I've got a few cloud shots taken a few days ago at Sacred Ruminations.
Hugs and blessings,

Dragonstar said...

I like rain showers in the distance, and the smell in the air.

sharon said...

What a beautiful shot! Thanks for the lovely comment you left on mine.

Lea said...

Beautiful. I do love teh lok of clouds while they're raining, and the sound of raindrops on rooftops too.

Thank you

John said...

Great capture and very nice view from the bridge.

Louise said...

I love rain pictures. Good one!

Mustang Mike said...

Greaaat pictures! Isn't it something how the sky can turn color and turn from dark clouds to rain is such a short time. And to Laura, your niece, be safe. Personally, I would have wished for a Mustang, but there is still time!! Mustang Mike

Tommy V said...

Very beautiful picture for swf

Anna said...

You did a good job, even if you couldn't stop. I always enjoy seeing rain off in the distance like that.

dot said...

Good shot! Sure looks like rain is on the way.

Quiet Paths said...

I love rain shots like this. Lovely.

Catherine said...

We're used to take pictures of 2/3landscapes, 1/3 sky. Sometimes, we should better take pictures with 2/3 sky because it can be so "intense" and changing compared to landscape.
I guess the rain.
Sorry to be so late. I was very buzy. Have a nice Sunday.
