06.20.2014 The break of day

One more from Southeast Street in Amherst. Another surprise sky.  When I left the house the sky was not looking especially promising, but as I turned the corner in this direction where the trees are open this started to develop.  It’s funny as the sky to the left is where the sun was to rise and nothing much was happening, but to the south there was this.

I would have loved to shoot this sky over Quabbin Hill, but there wasn’t time.

  2. I’d looked at and commented on the previous picture you showed of this place, but I would never have suspected this is the same place.

    I think the high cirrus was the leading edge of the blowoff from Bill. It went just south of us across Missouri yesterday. The northern edge of the cirrus was visible all day. But it was clear over us. http://wxweb.meteostar.com/leads_images/satellite/SYS/VIS/201506201415_SYS_VIS.gif

    • Possibly. I am not at all well versed in things meteorological so I can’t say. But we did have a beautiful day with blue skies and puffy clouds. However, that changed late afternoon and we have been receiving what I am fairly sure are Bill’s rains since dinnertime and that will continue throughout the day.


  4. A gorgeous scene with magnificent sky coloring. It looks like a magical place and of course you were right to omit the house. Otherwise the house would haven marred the landscape.
