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.
