Photo Journal July: Day 2 - Clouds


"Dark clouds become heaven's flowers when kissed by light".

Rabindranath Tagore.

This is the view I had in my street when I went outside early this morning for my walk.
The best time for walks, during this very hot spell,
is between 5 and 7 a.m.

It was 33 degrees Celsius  on Sunday and it promises to be the same today.
Clouds are being blown over from the Atlantic Ocean via Spain.
We may get a few storms in a day or two with temperatures dropping a few degrees.
Let's hope so!

  2. Ooh, lovely and dramatic. We reached 29 degrees yesterday and that was quite hot enough thank you! But you have it hotter still. Not complaining though. It's lovely to see the sunshine . . . could do without the humidity though! xxx

    1. Hello to you, Sarn! Yes, the skies were pretty dramatic this morning and are temperatures are soaring and it feels hotter than yesterday because of added humidity!

    1. Thank you, Fi! I love Tagore's poetry. He was so close and also very sensitive to nature.

  4. Cannot remember the poem, but I liked it a lot at the time I had drama classes at school and I certainly liked the way Rabindranath Tagore was pronounced, the way it sounded, the way those syllables rolled of my tongue and drew paintings of far away dreams, mystic times and mysterious places in the air...

    1. Not all Tagore's lines were part of a whole poem, but I love his words. Yes, his name is sort of wonderful and he, and his writings, make us think of wonderful mysterious places!

  5. Amazing sky and such wonderful words to accompany your picture. As I'm writing I hear thunder in the distance. I'm hoping for some rain and a little relief from the heat!

  6. Thanks, Cathy! I hope you get some rain too, if only to lower the temperatures a little!
