Storm and Sunset

I took these photos last week..the first one was of a dark and sinister storm rolling in over the mountains and the water. You can see the rain coming closer and the sky looking angry.

The air was very still and you could feel the anticipation in the air......the calm before the storm.

This next photo actually took me by surprise. I had walked out of the shed to the bathroom and it was just on sunset.

I actually stopped in my tracks and just stared at what was in front of me.

The gum trees were silouetted against the backdrop of the fiery orange sunset, and the clouds were in a particular agreeable formation.

I couldn't move for a few moments and just drank in the visual feast before me.

Little gifts given to us that we may not always appreciate in our busy lives.

We carry on our day oblivious to the fact that things can happen to make the ground beneath us fall away........

It makes me stop. And ponder.
