Sky Watch Friday

Borgholm Castle, as I also posted for Monochrome last monday. This was taken a warm, beautiful summerday last year. Suddenly the darkest clouds came from nowhere. Minutes after those pictures were taken, it was so dark and rainy that the cars on the road had to stop for a while.




For more Sky Watch photos, visit the Sky watch site - Sky watch was Dots idea, now hosted by Sandy, Wren, Klaus, Fishing Guy and Ivar.

RuneK said...

Veldig fine bilder Lene! I det første ser det ut som det brenner noe veldig der, at røyken velter ut.Stilig! Fortsatt en fortryllende påske fra oss oppe i tåka. :)

JULIE K said...

Nydelige bilder du viser. Laster du opp bildene direkte fra pc til blogg eller bruker du picasa eller annet program. Jeg sliter veldig med bildene mine for tiden. NÅr jeg laster dem opp i bloggen mister de farge og effekter og blir blasse. Ikke artig å vise dem da : (

Dramatiske bilder og vær i vakre omgivelser.
Det er en stund siden sist jeg var innom deg nå, så nå skal jeg kose meg her og bla meg nedover.
For det er alltid en fryd for øynene å besøke bloggen din.
Ønsker deg en riktig god påske, Lene.
Det blir hjemmepåske på meg og kneet mitt i år, så da blir det nok litt blogging også, ja.
Ha fine dager! :)
God påskeklem fra meg.

Lene, a very beautiful landscape. You captured the dark sky beautifully, it really looks threatening. It is great Drama!

Ivar Ivrig said...

Fine softe bilder. Du har sans for god behandling av bildene :-)

erin said...

both shots just spectacular...the drama in the second with those clouds swooping in...wow

Daryl said...

I am nearly wordless .. WOW ..

amatamari said...

impressive and beautiful!

Esther Garvi said...

Den andra bilden är som tagen från en medeltida saga! Stämningen är perfekt!

Kitty said...

Really dramatic pictures! Quite scary, though, with the ruined castle...

Wonder Turquette said...

Impressive photos! I like them very much! Have a great day!

Tarolino said...

Et sådant fantastiskt moln. Det ser ut som borgen skulle brinna med en massa tjock rök som kommer från den. Väldigt fina bilder det här. Speciellt den brinnande borgen.

Babooshka said...

I think your storm came to me. Very atmospheric images.

Charlotte said...

Sinnsykt flotte bilder, disse hadde jeg skikkelig sansen for! Skyene, bygningen, og fargene satt som ett skudd i mine øyne :) Bra jobba! :)

mononeil said...

The clouds loook mad. Nice one.

Judy said...

Wow!!! That is awesome.

Lew said...

Looks like a monster racing over the trees! I like the photo of the old castle in sun with the dark clouds above.

Barbara said...

Spectacular shots. Those clouds are very intimidating and dark.
Happy Friday Smiles B

Arija said...

Leene, your photos are amazing, the castle looks like it has just burnt down and is stil smoking, a bit like our house just after the fire with the empty windows and doorways and glowing from the inside as though all the ights were left on.
The landscape is so green and vibrant topped by those great tumbling clouds.
I forgot to mention in your post below the car that rally impresse me and you obviously singled out for the same reason..the one that looked like a skull with the hollow eyes...

ROSIDAH said...

Very powerful clouds! Have a great weekend, Lene :)

KD said...

Nice pictures, it almost looks as though there's smoke coming out of the building!

Rosadimaggio63 said...

Grazie di essere passata nel mio blog e di aver lasciato un tuo post.-

Buon fine settimana.-

Anne-Berit said...

Fantastisk fine bilder fikk du no ihvertfall før regnet kom.Skikkelige regnskyer det der.
Fortsatt god påske til deg og dine.Klem fra meg!

MaineBirder said...

Absolutely stunning images! Love the storm clouds and the castle.

Thanks for visiting My Skywatch.

Ebie (The Main-Ingredient) said...

Both photos are so impressive. The second shows the clouds are going to burst!

lv2scpbk said...

Cloudy sky but I think between the building and the clouds it makes for a interesting photo.

Penelope said...

Spectacular clouds, and the castle makes for an even more entrancing photo. The clouds are even better in the second one, however!

Louise said...

Those clouds are magnificent! I love both of these captures. They are so expansive.Just wonderful.

Dot O said...

Beautiful yet threatening skies!! I love your entries this week! They remind me of one of my favorite movies that I used to watch with my kids - "The Neverending Story". It had skies like this in it right before the monster would appear.

Great captures!

yen said...

very dramatic evening sky...love the foreground very much, great perspective.

George said...

The clouds look very ominous, but they are also beautiful. You've captured drama in both of these.

prkl said...

Now there's some threatening clouds, no wonder they came down on you like that. Very well captured for SWF. Have a great weekend!

Utrulig flotte bilder!!!
Dette KAN DU!

Monica

Dagrun said...

Så flott himmel, særlig det første med lyset over borgen.

Diane C. said...

Clouds like those would stop me in my tracks also. Remarkable photos, thanks for sharing!

Bestemor Aud said...

Fantastiske bilder av uværet som kom sigende! Borgholm - hvor er det?
God påske!

RuneE said...

Det første må bli min favoritt - kanskje fordi jeg har vært der. Fint på alle måter.

vincibene said...

Fantastic dramatic atmospheric pictures!

Bim said...

An evil-looking cloud indeed. Both pictures are great - the second one is my favourite with the different layers of cloud and the storm brewing in between (or is an alien starship going to emerge in a second -?) - and the contrasting green.

Sharon said...

Yes, those clouds mean business!! Your photos are breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL!!

Raven said...

Great shots - looks like you where there just at the right moment.

Gennasus said...

Wow! That's some sky. No doubt about an impending storm! Fab photo.

Wenche said...

Fantastike fine bilder! Spennande lys på bilda.

Har vore å kikka på resten av bildene på bloggen din. Du tar mange gode og spennande bilder! Har lagt deg til blogglista mi(som ikkje er så veldig lang:-))

Ønsker deg ei god påske!

Bryan said...

Those are some hungry looking clouds.

Salty said...

Beautiful shots! The ominous clouds are so dramatic.

Ruth said...

Those are the most amazing clouds. They look like living creatures! Great captures.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Gorgeous skies! The first one looks like the clouds are pouring into the castle. So eerie!

Your blog is very lovely. I'd love to know how you were able to make your photos so large. I can barely see mine anymore with my 'older' eyes. hah!

If you care to share some HTML tips I'd be ever so grateful. :)

Linnea W said...

That is a lovely castle to explore. It almost looks like the cloud is coming out of the castle! Those skies look scary...I'd run for cover - fast!

C. Michael Cox said...

Beautifully violent photos.

kRiZ cPEc said...

Mojo said...

Perfect sky for a scene like this! You can almost smell the fires burning, hear the clank of the smiths' hammers, see the ... well you get the idea. Wonderful shot!
