First Hurricane Pic

As I'm sure you know, we are expecting Hurricane Irene today here on the East Coast in NJ. I took this photo earlier today (in Hunterdon County) before the steady rain started. The weather was cool and I thought to myself, I ought to get out and do some yardwork before the storm comes, but I wasn't really sure when the rain was going to start so I left the yardwork alone. The steady rain didn't start until 5pm.

I will post pictures from the storm's aftermath once it's over.

The View From Here: Cloud Compositions and Edible Art

Now that it is almost totally dark when I usually take my sunrise photos, I'm taking more pictures during the day instead. I think I got took some pretty interesting shots:

Photo of a construction site in the early evening -

A local farm on an overcast day:

A look at downtown Newark (NJ) through the bird netting covering the window:

A moody sky that is about to get violent, for sure -

Puffy clouds, with a dragonfly that wandered into the shot at just the right moment -

And last but not least, a bit of edible art: bean salad and roasted veggie kabobs (yum, yum) -

The View From Here: Sunrise Series Coming to an End

My sunrise cloud series will soon be coming to an end, sigh. Not because I want it to, but because the sun is rising later and later in the mornings now, and you know what that means: autumn will soon be here. So enjoy:

The View From Here: Moody Clouds

Here are some more cloudy sunrises for you to enjoy. The clouds can create so many different moods! I never tire of looking at them:

And then there's one little lonely cloud, who vanished away just moments after I snapped the photo:
