SkyWatch Friday: Stormy Beach Morning

A storm over Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. May 7, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Our temperatures finally got into the 40s yesterday and most of the snow is gone.  I’m sure we’ll get more, but I yesterday was a very pleasant day for being outdoors.

There have been quite a few ‘thinking of spring’ posts lately and I’m joining that number by posting a picture of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  But since it will be several months  before we’ll be able to get back there to enjoy the warm sunshine, I’m showing the beach on a rainy morning with storm clouds overhead.


I’m grateful for the varied beauty and moods of the skies over our heads.

    Beautiful shot! I love this brooding sky! Even when it rains in Southern California at the beach (like it’s supposed to do over the weekend … hooray!) the skies don’t look so dramatic. Thanks for sharing 😉
    Hugs and blessings,

    When you see it out there over the ocean you just want it to stay away! 🙂
