The Gathering Storm

This photo was taken in the fields outside North Conway, New Hampshire, on a steamy, late summer afternoon, on a short hike with my husband and daughter. The weather was unsettled, with another thunderstorm threatening, so we were hesitant to go too far from the car. The view of the sun's rays spilling from the ominous clouds was spectacular, and you could feel an explosive energy building up in the air.

As awesome to view as a stormy sky may be, the weather changes and intensity wrought by global warming are devastating. I'm afraid of losing the balance we are used to in nature, which we have taken for granted in our lifetimes. It's tragic that humankind is upsetting that balance.

  1. I view I would love to have from my window. Beautiful. Anna :)

  2. Thanks, Anna! This place reminded me of an Alpine meadow in Switzerland. But the sky was full of energy and very threatening!
