    If there is one thing I love about summers then it has to be the occasional cloudy skies hidden behind the stormy clouds ominously threatening rain. I love it wild and windy, in fact the best storm I’ve witnessed is the one from the old version of the Wizard of Oz. Was that breathtaking or what?! But this picture beats all. Love the dark side of the picture along with the radiant white lining of the steamy clouds. Simply spectacular!
