Photos Post-Storm

I awoke to massive thunderstorms.  I got my coffee and Rowan and I sat on the staircase until the worst of it was over, doing a crossword.  Meanwhile the dog barked at every clap of thunder (incessantly) and the cats hid under the bed more in terror of the dog than the storm.  Eventually the sun broke through and I went to open the window.  
Looking out, the sun was reflecting off the raindrops on the foliage in the front garden and I ran for my camera.  So beautiful.

Hey Lizzie! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your blog too! I would give anything if I could take photographs like you! I wanted to say I really like the quote about the bookcases! We have a house with very small rooms, and in my bedroom, I have room only enough for one bookcase. I keep asking my hubby to build me some wall shelves all the way around my room, and he just groans! LOL! I have got books strowed everywhere. Pretty soon, I'm gonna have to hang them from the ceiling!. Hmmmm. That's an idea! LOL!

I'm glad you like my blog. I hope you will continue coming back.

God Bless!

Those photos are amazing!!!!! It was a beautiful storm this morning. I thought it sounded so close turns out a house not far from ours was set on fire by the lighting. Scary!

Hey Liz,
Beautiful photos! One of my favorite times to take photos is after a storm... the light is wonderful!
This storm came through here at 8am and woke me up.. I lay in bed enjoying the thunder sounds.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend...round two of storms will be here later today!

These are wonderful. I've never tried this post-storm. Gonna try this if the sun ever comes out after this round of storms!

Those photos are absolutely beautiful! We have had stormy weather all around us for almost 4 days but every time it fizzles out before it gets to our house.

unfortunately I am almost positive that next weekend when my hubby and I are doing the ACS Relay for Life it will pour buckets!

Hi Lizzie, Thanks for your comment. Your pictures sure are beautiful. I love them all. Thank you for your visit.
Phills Stuff is this old looking store on the other side of town with lots of stuff. A real fun place to be.
Seize the day is one of my favorite quotes too.

Such pretty water drops on such vibrant green!

Kristin @ Ellie-Town June 6, 2010 at 7:00 PM

I also love the pictures of your daughters on the right. You can get such an idea of their personalities just from those two shots!

Thanks for stopping by Ellie-Town. :)

Lizzie, I'm glad you stopped by my blog, as that led me to yours. Awesome photos, and I also just read your "Extracurriculars" post. Wow, such similar and wonderful childhoods. Among the places that fostered my sister's and my creativity was Truro, where my grandparents had a house on the dunes. The family would drive up there from VA every June for 2 weeks, and the activities -- which never included TV and rarely involved the radio -- were unending! I envy that you live on the Cape. It's a wondrous place. BTW, about a year ago, I decided to buy a bunch of CDs to replicate the collection of albums my parents had. Among them, Camelot, The Unsinkable Molly Brown (Tammy Grimes version), My Fair Lady (Rex and Julie), etc. In our house, that was the Sunday soundtrack. I'm following and I'll return!

Melissa B. June 8, 2010 at 9:07 PM  

Love these! The contrast of the bright green, the lines etched in the leaves and the water droplets are unusual and beautiful. Bravo!

Kassie June 9, 2010 at 8:10 PM

Midlife Jobhunter June 10, 2010 at 3:37 AM  

Indeed beautiful. Tiny droplets, freshening the green. Beautiful.
