Marvelous shots, Clairz! Gorgeous, stormy colors! When you see a sky like this aren't you glad you have a camera?

Absolutely beautiful!

Great shots. I suspect storm clouds are always welcome in New Mexico as long as they bring rain and not just lightning.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Love the colors-they make me think of fall, though.
I just read the post before this, that looks interesting.

Storms we can do without, but as a result, you got some wonderful pictures. Nicely done.
