Schitterende opname, Carol, het lijkt allemaal zo rustig, of is dit de stilte voor de storm...
Hartelijke groeten....Frans.

Ecobird has replied to Frans Schols
Thank you very much Frans. Yes I know what you mean - it is often so quiet before a big storm. The first drops of rain were falling and minutes later it was no longer quiet but the air filled with the needle sharp sounds of the rain bouncing off everything it touched. Time to take cover! Have a lovely evening

Absolutely stunning. Fabulous scene...and the menacing sky is so dramatic, Carol. Fantastic.

Ecobird has replied to Diana Australis
Good evening and many thanks Diana. Really appreciated. Very British I guess but I love that moment when the air is still, you can almost smell the storm in the air and then the first fat drops of rain fall as a warning to dive for cover before the Heavens open.. and then you have a good moan about the weather!!

Cracking image Carol, The white of the boats and buildings provides a great contrast to the dark of the water and those wonderful storm clouds.

All the best, Doug

Wow, Carol, this is stunning. I love the dark sky with the boats.

I love this song and this version. Funny though, it always sounds happy to me with those little bells sounds. :)

Hi Carol,

I like this one very much!
Such a stormy looking sky, yet the boats are beautifully illuminated, and a few bright colours to complete the job!

Best wishes, and a good weekend!

Thank you very much Roger. Really appreciated. I am not keen on getting soaked but love the moment just as the storm is about to break. I probably shouldn't tempt fate though after all the bad weather we have had in recent months!
