Contrast

Yesterday's sky was heavy with low dark clouds yet the sun would pop out when the strong winds pushed the clouds aside. A bit like opening a curtain to let the light in.

The trees enjoy posing for the sun.

Those are beautiful pictures, and the sky makes them very dramatic. Hope you are doing well, no damaging storms please. :-)

We had a similar day today over here in California. Here's looking forward to some sun sometime soon!

Beautiful captures, and the blossoms are so vibrant catching the rays. I love the b&w...very moody.

Spring is the unsettled season, with wonderful cloud watching.

Nice pick up...the steel grey skies over the red trees is a seldom seen contrast...and one of beauty.

What beautiful colours - you captured them so well. thanks for visiting my blog (nature's song) - autumn's my favourite season as well :)

It looks like autumn rather than spring! We're having monsoon. This is either a very late monsoon or a really early one. The cats moans about it because they keep getting wet tails and paws.

I like those photos, especially the second one!
The sun popped in and out down here yesterday and today too.
I read that Sunday it's to maybe get to 80.
