Before the Storm


Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
~ Rabindranath Tagore
The morning before our winter storm of 02/19/12 was sunny and gorgeous. But that afternoon the clouds rolled in. I saw this "saucer" like cloud and just had to pull out my iPhone and snap it! You can see a bit of the sunburst that I caught too. I think this type of cloud is called a Lenticular cloud - which you can read more about - HERE
And if you missed the detailed SNOWFLAKE shots I captured during our Storm - you can see those - HERE and HERE
