It seems our definitions on good and bad weather differ.How can anything so beautiful be when rain is the breath of life.

Woody said...

A lot of drama in those clouds, I always thought the rain bringing the clouds down is really interesting.

ladyfi said...

That bad weather makes for great photos!

Joanne said...

Lindas!

I don't know whether I like the sky or the beach better in each photo. I guess I could like both, couldn't I?1

Dramatic skies and a beautiful beach and its that time of year for stormy skies! The light in the last shot is the ray of hope! Marvelous captures as always, JM! Enjoy your weekend!

You've captured some amazing, low-hanging clouds here! Great shots.

San said...

These pictures and cloudformations are just stunning. I love them all.

Have a great weekend.

Lowell said...

Just like "decay" you know how to take advantage of nasty weather. It looks like a lot of rain is rolling in from the sea. Hope you didn't get wet!

Halcyon said...

The weather may be bad, but it makes for some fantastic photos! Love that sky.

Francisca said...

Funny, I don't see this as bad weather... more like drama queen weather... changing all the time. Hope you had a lovely walk there, José.

Lovely colors! We are getting a lot of rain off and on here too. Yesterday was a deluge! I like it though. It's a nice change of pace. Looks like this storm is way out to sea at the moment. Hope it doesn't cause any flooding when it makes landfall...

Art said...

Awesome shots, these photos are really gorgeous!

RedPat said...

What a sky - fabulous!

VP said...

When bad is really spectacular...

I like the reflection of the sky and light in the receding waves of low tide.

Julie said...

Oh, isn't it superb to see a storm sweep across the landscape like that. Talk about 'the power and the glory'! I love the lines in you captured here, Jose. Quite wonderful shots ...

Pode estar mau tempo...mas as fotos estão "super"!!! Lindas...convidam a escrever...sobre uma vasta e imensa "manta de retalhos" de assuntos.
Muitas vezes, para escrever, tenho de centrar aminha atenção numa foto...depis...as coisas que escrevo saem naturalmente (isso não atesta a qualidade da minha pobre escrita); apenas digo que me ajudam a "tirar os assuntos da gaveta"! Entendes?

bom resto de fds.

It may mean stormy weather but oh those clouds are beautiful. MB

Sometimes bad weather looks so much better than a clear, blue sky!

Andrew said...

Beautiful images...

Jack said...

JM, even your bad weather is gorgeous!

Lowell said...

Thank you for the link re the earthquake and ensuing events. Mind-boggling. I agree with Voltaire's theological reflections...and one would think that the people would begin to wonder about all the theology they had been taught...

But, no. What usually happens with disasters is the survivors praise God for sparing them without reflecting upon a god that would destroy their friends and neighbors for utterly no reason.

Anyway, the article was immensely interesting! Does it ever concern you that such a thing could happen again?

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Lovely shots... very dramatic skies!

Bob Crowe said...

That's a lovely series. The ocean looks ominous and makes me glad my POV is on something solid.

Virginia said...

JM, even your bad weather is gorgeous the way you photograph it. They are like paintings I wish I could create.

These are so beautiful and powerful looking.

brattcat said...

these are so beautiful, jm. like masterful paintings. the light and composition couldn't be improved.

Dina said...

Exciting photos. You are lucky to have the expansiveness of the sea to look over.

Leif Hagen said...

Your "bad weather" means no sun and our "bad weather" this week may mean.....SNOW!

Carolina Tavares said...

O tempo estava ruim, mas as fotos ficaram lindas.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The weather might be bad but the photos certainly aren't. Wonderful drama here.

photonio said...

Gunn said...

Great place AND great images.

Cildemer said...

Um mau tempo que ficou muito bem imortalizado!
Espero que jà esteja melhor e que não houve por aí muitos danos!

Pat said...

Threatening skies! I love the beach on cloudy days.
