The Darkness of an Early Morning

The storm rolled through northwest Pensacola, Florida this morning with a fury of raindrops tearing at my windows. Deep resounding thunder boomed in the background, while fierce slashes of lightning tore through the dark skies. Flocks of cranes swarmed to the fields near my home, waiting for the rain to make temporary lakes filled with bugs ready for the taking. It was a glorious morning and I reveled in the beauty exploding all around me. The trees heavy with bloom, drooped in the rain.

The gloom was deep in the field. My flash went off for the top picture.

This was closer to how it looked. At 8 am the street lights out front of our houses were still lit. Tornado watches and flash flood watches were issued quickly.

Through the horse-hole after the rains departed.

The cranes were air born! Breakfast time!

The trees heavy in bloom smell like lilacs.

This Sunday interlude to your day was inspired by, The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge, “Early Bird.”

Thanks for stopping by for a visit, I loved seeing you all!
