Just before the Rain

Driving towards our village yesterday afternoon I saw this wonderful combination of a very dark, nearly purple sky just before pourring down in buckets and the bright sunlight on the buildings. The village looked like a cut out - the colours were great.

I love sunlit buildings against a dark sky, this is wonderful, Liza! I can feel the air heavy with impending rain. Great colors!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you very much, Jason. I had a look on your site again and loved the simplicity of your stillives!

Liza Hirst said...

Thanks to you, too, Mineke!
Seems as if we were both using the same blue yesterday!
