SkyWatch ~ Raindance Clouds


A brief rain had cleared the air and something in the light
caught my eye . . .



as I looked, the clouds performed a mad dance rising


and swirling


madly circling the rising thunderhead


just a brief pause with gentlest of hues


and off into the mad, exhilarating dance once more.



Whatever the sky is up to where you are, do share it on SkyWatch!

  26. I enjoyed your rain clouds dancing, arija. The sky is an immense stage for clouds to play never-ending melody and to dance in the wind.

    It’s been raining since the other day after consecutive 34 days of sunshine in my part of the world. The wet could contain the spared of the viruses, that’s a relief, though freezing rain is depressing.
    Have a nice weekend.
