“I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it. ” ~Author Unknown


I was in the car (no other cars around, and I stopped the car briefly).  I took this shot through the windshield.  We had wet snow today.    I love storms, makes me want to settle in for a cozy book and a blanket, especially if it’s on a Saturday!  As you see in the picture, it wasn’t raining or snowing! But to the west towards the mountains something was up, or really I should be saying, something was coming down!!  Living close to the mountains you never know what kind of weather you’re going to be having, especially in my case in Calgary, Alberta!!

I was heading to a Preparedness fair as my Dad asked me to take pictures of his displays, how appropriate…being prepared for the storms of life that come your way.

What I like about this picture is the blue sky behind, and the rainy/snowy clouds! The recent tornadoes that have spawn across the United States with the result of mass amounts of destruction and deaths; the blue sky represents to me, that when the storm passes, better days are yet ahead!  There is still hope!

Bless the people who have lost and suffered so much in the USA due to the recent tornadoes!

    Thanks for giving me the link to your blog. I’ll have to try and keep up with it. It’d be really fun!

        I love your stormy picture with the beautiful blue sky in the background. I love storms!! They are amazing too, as well as the blue sky. Great analogy about there being ‘blue sky’ ahead after the storms have passed. It’s so easy to take for granted our blue sky days. Storms cause us to look towards heaven, remember, and be grateful. Thanks Chris!

  2. Wow Chris, that is a great shot! You should remind your readers to double click on your pictures, it makes them come up nice and big and you can really see those amazing clouds better.
