Sunday Stills Challenge - Clouds

I have lots of pics in my archives of clouds and since it's been a little dreary and gray around here this week I'm putting them to good use! These were all taken last year with my little point and shoot and are all straight out of the camera, no editing done.

This was taken at Alki Beach. I love going up there, it brings back so many memories, but I just don't get up there all that often. This particular day we were meeting my cousin for a quick lunch and it happened to be an absolutely gorgeous day at the beach. We didn't stay long, but I had to snap some pictures before we left.


These next two were taken at the boyfriend's parent's old house. I think some thunder storms were moving thru and the clouds were just beautiful.



This one was taken from a hay field where we were picking up 5 tons of hay for our ponies. I was driving the truck around the field while the boyfriend loaded the hay up. I got a little distracted by the sunset and the sky.


This one was taken from our "arena-to-be", when we had the round pen up. It's the only place on our property that you can see the sunset.

These were all very good. Sunset photos always look so much more dramatic and beautiful with clouds added. :)
