where you share 5 random facts about you, your day,
your pets, your kids, whatever
your pets, your kids, whatever
1. A good storm invigorates me. Must be all those negative ions in the air.
2. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. They also help recovery from physical exhaustion and fatigue – achieved by increasing oxygen levels in the blood.
3. I like to listen to the rain pounding on a metal roof.
4. I like the smell of the air after a storm.
5. I am one of those people who actually likes to dance in the rain.

Ah, we have a lot in common, Karen, I feel exactly the same way you do!! Guess it's one of the reasons I moved to the northwest years ago -- I was born and raised in Texas where rain and storms were actually few and far between!! Awesome skies for the day -- any day actually!! Hope you have a lovely, stormy, rainy weekend!! Enjoy!!ReplyDelete
i love the smell of wet earth and leaves, and the clearness of the air after a storm. :) love this sky.ReplyDelete
Nice shot with lovely colors.ReplyDelete
I used to like the rain but now it just puts me on edge as to what leak my very old building may spring! ;-))ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo, down here I always think the air is cleaner and the sky more blue after heavy rain, and those dark clouds offer great photo scenes, such a contrast to a sunny day. Cheers, Jean.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shot- and I love the smell of rain- it ranks right up there with the smell of mowed grass. Seasonal thing I guess.ReplyDelete
Love the rain - but am less enthralled with thunder and lightening.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous image - thank you.
Our daughter loves the rain too and feels better in that kind of weather. I am the opposite. But if my stormy days were as beautiful as the one you show here I might just change my mind!!ReplyDelete
I have been dancing in the rain all day wet and happy:) I had no idea about this. That explains a lot:) Hug BReplyDelete
Very beautifully stormy weather is captured.ReplyDelete
Hey, Karen! You and I think alike on all five of your Random 5. Your sky shot is very lovely indeed.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photo for SWF,Karen!Thank you for sharing and have a nice weekend.ReplyDelete
I wish I could like the rain as much as you! Storms usually give me headaches. Beautiful photo! Have a great weekend and Happy skywatching!ReplyDelete
hmm...we are opposites concerning rain. nevertheless I love your capture of this sky!ReplyDelete
Nice cloud photo. I live in a rainy climate, but I don't mind the rain. In the winter, it means there will be snow in the mountains. I'm a skier, so that's a good thing.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photo Karen… I like to dance in the rain too, but only if it is summer time and warm. Still I enjoy an exciting storm… especially the snowy variety… I don't mind dancing in the SNOW … somehow that doesn't feel cold in the same way as rain this time of year.ReplyDelete
Your shot of the storm brewing over the water is beautiful...I love the way you incorporated your random five with your picture and by the way, I love rain on a tin roof and dancing in the rain too...ReplyDelete
Your sky just goes on forever.ReplyDelete
I like the smell of air just before the rain comes.
Beautiful photo, Karen!ReplyDelete

Spectacular sky Karen....storms are never boring!ReplyDelete
Wow, incredibly beautiful...such 'emotional' skies/clouds. All I can say, is "WOW"ReplyDelete

The picture is wonderful... and I like dancing in the rain.ReplyDelete
I happen to love rainy days .... there's just something comforting about them.
I love to go out and photograph after a good rain, the colors are all so intense. Love the look of your sky.ReplyDelete
all those random fives sound good to me too. A fantastic photographReplyDelete
I like non-sever thunder storms too. The smell after a rain is awesome and the cool summer air is usually a relief.
I was so scared of storms as a kid. When the beep .... beep .... beep warnings came across the tv I went and hit behind the couch or under a bed.
That's one beautiful sky!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous blue sky! Lovely.ReplyDelete
I like thunderstorms, and there's nothing like rain falling on a metal roof. I'd dance in the rain if Gene Kelly were my partner. ;)ReplyDelete
I don't mind the rain when the weather is warmer, and I love to listen to the sound of rain on metal roof too..ReplyDelete

Another great shot of the Hurd. The skies were always so dramatic up there.ReplyDelete
