Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset

I took this when wandering around on the edge of a farmer’s field last November.  It’s a harvested corn field and I remember thinking that it seemed almost fitting with the cold air because the setting sun didn’t look like it was providing any warmth at all.

This one happened after a HUGE storm in our city this summer.  A few days later, a co-worker of mine was telling us how her brother called to ask if the city was on fire because it looked really orange.  This was funny for the silliness of the statement and almost believable because the sky was so very orange.  However, with the lack of smoke in said sky, it was still a pretty dumb statement.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sky

It’s been a while since I participated in the Weekly Photo Challenge that the Daily Post has every Friday.  This week, however, the topic is Sky and since I just happened to take a bunch of photos of the sky before a thunderstorm yesterday, I thought it was appropriate.

Dark and ominous clouds

Those clouds rolled in and then there was one hell of  a storm with all kinds of wind, thunder and lightening.  It was a long time coming as we haven’t had a storm in a couple of weeks and it’s been pretty hot.  After it was over, the sky was a really awesome orange colour over the trees near my apartment building.
