After the storm



Yesterday we had another storm--not a bad one. The wind did blow and we had some thunder and lightning, but it didn't last long. Since the storm hit in the late afternoon, I kept watching to the east to look for a rainbow, but no such luck. I think the sun was still just a little to high when the conditions were right for a rainbow. I got the bright idea to look to the west! I grabbed my camera bag and my husband did the chauffering...

Please click to enlarge--it really does change things!
This is a couple photos from the first stop. The bottom one is sort of grainy--I think the proper term for it in digital is that it has noise. But I still think in terms of film a lot of the time. Anyway, I had the iso set on 1600....that is the reason it looks like it does. I wish I had taken one with a lower iso, but I do like this one.

Be sure and check my other blog, The Road Less Photographed. I know soon as I get done here I am going over to it to post a couple photographs there from this drive.
As an added note, I had a heck of time getting these uploaded...and when I finally accomplished that feat, they did not enlarge to the size they should. So I deleted them and uploaded them again one at a time. If they don't enlarge now, I don't know what else to do. They should be almost full screen sized when opened.

They enlarged for me. Beautiful shots and I love your new header photo.

These are wonderful Rose. I think you like to do like I do - drive and find a photo to take. I followed a sunset Monday evening and it was worth it.
I see you have a fence too - we definitely like some of the same things. Guess that's why I like coming here.
I had an awful time downloading photos Monday evening too - didn't think I'd ever get done.
I'm heading over now to see the other pics you have.

Pretty colors and textures those of these clouds...
They are some photos that transmit serenity.
I love them.

Blogger had problems last night, Rose. I had trouble uplading photos too.

Even with grey skies, the rural Indiana roadside looks good to my eyes.
