I really was due to post a small critter, a wildflower or some combo of same...But then Rick asked for "STORMCLOUDS"...

Since I have excellent connections with the weather service in the Maritimes there was but one problem: getting up early! Here I was at 7:15 AM already photographing pre-dawn stormclouds. However, later on I found much better colour, as the sun rays were being blocked by alternating layers of clouds. The "window" seen in this shot lasted less than a minute as the clouds were flying by at quite a clip.

This one was my pick out of a bunch of shots. Any guesses why? Jay

Photo shot at 08:38AM. Scaled to 30% for TN; trimmed 54 pixels total on left and right to meet 800 pixels.
Captioned with JPeG quality at 98, then posted.

Hi Jay ,
very nice image .
well composition and splendid sky.

Hi Jay,
Superb composition of this very nice scene, since it's in Sambro Harbour. Sun rays through the clouds and trees in the foreground are my favorite. You even have a gull in the photo, thus your small critter, lol. Thanks Jay
