really dark skies; I wouldn't fancy sitting out on the water with the threat of storms imminent. Great capture Stewart

Ooh I don't like those dark clouds. That's enough to make me hoist anchor and head to shore. Great shot!

Boy, it looks as if that cloud is headed right towards you! Glad you didn't get soaked.

Love the stormy sky but I would be heading for shore!

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful shot! I wouldn't want to be on that boat though!

Oh my goodness...
so, so pretty.

But, I'd be HAPPY as a pig in a mudhole to have the rain come here.

Daar hangt wel een hele zware bui ,ik hoop dat je droog thuis gekomen ben.

Gail Dixon said...

Perfectly composed. It's always cool to see rain from a distance.

The promise of rain, will it come, or will it stay. Lovely sky shot.

It made me duck just looking at those clouds coming down.

Susan said...

So dramatic and moody - lovely shot :D)

Brian King said...

That's fantastic, Stewart!

Wally Jones said...

I love being on the water when the weather is changing. Can be pretty dramatic, as your wonderful photograph shows!

Florida Farm Girl said...

Oh, I am SO going to enjoy this place!! Just stopped over from A Quiet Corner.

Hilary said...

There's drama in those clouds. Beautiful.

cobie en bas van Es said...

geweldig mooi gezicht is dit het lijkt mij wel een behoorlijk pittige bui.

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful, moody, gray skies and a great capture! Yes, I like to see rain in the distance -- preferably!! We get more than enough of the "close-up" wet stuff! Enjoy your weekend, Stewart!!

A wonderful view! A gorgeous sky!

Laloofah said...

I take it you've been getting more rain than you need lately! Always captivating to see a storm like this at a distance, though - rather invigorating, too! (A bit too invigorating if you're out there on a boat, though!)

This is a gorgeous photo! But what thrilled me was to see the little oyster boat. It is exactly like the deadrise boats used in the Chesapeake Bay. My husband's ancestors farmed and oyster-fished in the summer, and built these boats in the winter. The connection between all boatmen I see spans the world!
