Wild August storm in Juniper Canyon was incredible to see and be a part of. Harvest was late but once it started it was over quickly and now we are headed into fall. It is hot here today…almost 100…however the light has changed from bright summer light to a softer light. I knew a storm was building but had no idea what I would see or experience…thankfully I was home and had my camera ready…hope you enjoy the pictures! They open large if you click them and may take time to download as I wanted to leave them in a size that you could appreciate and experience the storm and colors as I did…it is worth the wait:)
If you look closely you can see deer in our CRP field…accross the road from our home.
The view between Annie’s ears…she’s watching the deer too.
Our nightly deer family coming in for water…there is a running creek in the vegetation.
Here comes the Wild August storm…the pictures are all in sequence…from 6:45 until 8:00.
It’s getting darker and is only 6:50 in the evening
A beam of light trying to shine through dark clouds
Birds flying off getting out of the way
Time to run for cover!
Wind is not blowing but the energy of the storm is picking up a bit of dust
Hang on…here we go…even the wheat stubble field across the road is turning a deep orange
Only a few drops of rain fell but enough for a rainbow
I have never seen a storm like this in Juniper Canyon…if ever anyplace else!
Color beyond imagination
Everything began to turn to several shades of orange and red
Interesting cloud formations above the house
Orange bathed light in every direction
No words to describe
The clouds kept moving above us which changed the light constantly
I was swept up taking picture after picture
The orange-colored skies lasted from 7:02 until 7:54
God gave us a gift…
A late August picture show
Skies filled with God’s glory
And His fire
I took most of the pictures standing on the road for a full view every direction
I could not stop taking pictures
I will never forget this storm
Slowly it began to fade
I did not Photoshop any of the images…the colors and clouds are completely natural! The storm was completely un-natural…I loved seeing it!
Above picture was taken from the canyon behind us and shows the storm heading our way.
