Sky Watch Friday - Badminton

Though I've had just about enough of the thunderstorms these past few weeks, I have to admit it's given me some wonderful cloud photographs for Sky Watch.

This storm mixed it up in the east so was already past us before it began. It made an excellent backdrop for an evening of badminton, and an interesting subject for me to shoot.
Please visit Tom's blog at Wiggers World for more Sky Watch Friday.

Beautiful! :)
The clouds are coloured in green and pink. I`ve never seen anything like that before. Great captures! :)

Angie said...

I love that thunderhead. It's good to see the laughter with the seriousness of the storm in the background. Neat juxtaposition.

Great thunderclouds. It looks like you have plenty of space for badminton!

Jamie Dawn said...

Very nice, fluffy clouds. That sky looks so neat!
I'm amazed to see how flat it is there.
I've gotten so used to being surrounded by hills, that it is odd to see these shots and be able to see so far in the distance. No one can sneak up on you!
That looks like perfect weather and a lot of fun!

Cool cloud formations. It's amazing what you can visualize in them.

San said...

Such vastness is awe-inspiring.

I haven't played badminton in years. It's so much fun. I always thought of it as extremely gentle tennis.
