Change in the Weather Coming



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I went to Asheville, North Carolina, in early April. The weather was perfect for much of the morning, but rain was forecast for later in the day. While at a rest area in the mountains I captured this image of blue skies and white clouds with darker clouds starting to move in.

Lately the skies have been very strange.They are very low to the ground and I am not used to seeing this.
I have been watching them and they don't look too friendly our end of the world.

That is a great capture of that action - - - and I don't normally see white - dark - white - dark - - - usually it's one and then the other - - - side by side rather than in stripes. Pretty cool.

The light and dark clouds make an interesting photo, as if evil and good are battling up there in the sky.
