For Skywatch Friday I had so many different pictures to use, some of brilliant sunsets and sunrises, some with majestic mountains in the background, and others, shot through trees in the foreground to catch the sky as a backdrop. For some unintelligible reason, I chose this dark, quiet shot which is almost entirely sky. Here, a slow-moving squall is sending vertical black ribbons of rain downward onto distant trees. Behind it is an ominous horizontal line from which, at any moment, lightning is imminent. At this moment, there is a feeling of quiet on the edges of power which is projected, without dramatic shape or color, in a manner soothing to the eye.
