And then the rain began...

We have had quite a few rainy and stormy days since last week, and this is how it all began...

Before the Storm
Stormy Weather

And then the Storm began

I have made these photos during a motorbike ride around town last week.

When I came back home from the ride a thunderstorm began shortly after and it was stormy and rainy until three days ago, when the sun finally won her fight against the clouds.

It was late afternoon and the setting sun has lit the storm clouds beautifully.

By the way, the little black spots in the zoomed images are no dust or sensor spots, but they are birds - many birds enjoyed their afternoon in the sky before they had to hide from the storm 😊

The day before yesterday was the first day on which I could sit on my motorbike again and make a little ride around to see if everything is still okay ... and it was πŸ˜‰


Storm-Sun

Come and marvel at the sunset!
Lo-a storm is brooding near,-
All the thirsty world imploring,
In a mood akin to fear.

Like a beaker in her fingers
Holds the world the valley high,
Mountain-lipped and caΓ±on-hearted,
To the largess of the sky.

But the sky, capricious ever,
Hides the storm unbroken still;
And the pallid, sun-born nectar
Doth the beaker brimming fill.

See the weirdly golden essence
Lurk along, the shades between,
'Till it drowns and rolls above them
In triumphant glare of sheen.
