Thunder storm

Took this photograph 10 minutes before posting here. Sitting reading when it darken over and the wind rose. The crack of thunder crawled closer and then the rain beat it’s rhythm on the roof. Looking out the window the lough danced to the sound and beat off wind and rain. The rain making the clouds bleed like colour on a wet watercolour painting. I love nature and the was it plays with things around us.

Thank you

Was on my was out from the town of Downpatrick in County Down and I saw a sign for Ballynoe Stone Circle. Since the weather was fine and i was in no great hurry anywhere I headed out there. I took this photograph to take in the main circle and the burial mound. There are a few stones outside the circle which are not in this photo. The taller stones seen here are around 2 meter’s high and could date back 3000 years BC. I enjoyed the solitude of the place, it had a peaceful feeling around it.

Here’s a link with more details and photo’s with the grass cut, enjoy and thanks for viewing
