Sky Chaser

I am a 'sky chaser'.  This morning there was a particularly fine display.

This is cinematic sky.  The kind of sky that would be written about in the opening paragraphs of an epic classic tale.  Extreme weather has a certain hold over me.  There can be few things better than rushing inside to seek cover from an advancing storm and watching it break and wash over everything.

Oh, what beautiful clouds.  They looked so much like the painted mountainous background to some luscious oriental tableau of dragons and men and impossible flowers.

And then came the rain.
