Storm clouds

I have lived near the ocean my entire life, I am really very lucky. I have also traveled a lot and seen many beautiful skies but the skies in Florida are special. The colors are unlike any I have seen before. When the weather is good the oranges, blues, reds and purples just saturate the sky before sunset. Also as beautiful but oh so fierce are the skies when a storm is coming. I took a few photos with my phone on the way home the other night as a storm was brewing and I just had to paint it.

Wishful thinking

It is about this time of year that my thoughts usually turn to the mountains of North Carolina.  The Florida summer has been hot, humid and long and it is about now our group is starting to get ready for our retreat.  This year there have been some changes.  I am off to Russia and Barcelona and the annual retreat is in Georgia a little later this fall. But more about that later. 
I felt a little wistful about the mountains so I dug through my photos and came upon one that I really liked.  It was taken in Seven Devil's from the porch of Cindy's condo right in the middle of the mountains.
I just loved the way the clouds and mist rose blended into a beautiful sky.
