Weekly Photo Challenge – Through!

Saturday 24th March 2012


Sorry guys but I am doing another slideshow. I found out how to do it and now it seems I cannot help myself.  Seriously though, I feel that the pictures warrant a slideshow rather than just a gallery. 



This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A very heavy sky, where the sun and other elements are battling to get THROUGH. The heavy clouded sky is winning this battle. This scene was taken one early evening, when sun was setting but these heavy dark clouds spoilt the party. Because of these party poopers I did get some good pictures from it.

As this sky passed over it did drop a fair amount of water as well as an accompaniment of  thunder and lightning.

    Don’t worry about the slideshow. I feel the same way as you do, once I figure something out, I forget or the procedure is all changed. Ugh. LOL

    1. Oooh you are so kind, and it is my pleasure to know you as well… thank you so so much…pop back any time you are welcome..;) tea and biscuits time…

  6. Gerry, I actually LIKED the side show better than just one photo…it fits the theme as the sun tries to break through…you wouldn’t get that feeling if it were just one photo. Nice interpretation…

  7. The heavy clouded sky may have been winning the battle, but the sun put up a good fight. Together, however, they joined forces to make a stupendous slide show 🙂 Nice job. Gem

  8. Oh ho, I wish I’d thought of a slide show. It would have been cool to see the ocean emerging through the fog.
    What I love about your dramatic sky is the black trees in the foreground. Puts it in perspective.

    1. Thank you ‘nantuckettiechic’ and yes your would have been pretty incredible in a slideshow form. Still try it could you? thanks for your lovely words and visit.. pop back. if you do a slideshow I love to see it…

    1. On your post click media- upload pictures from where-ever you got them. I find it easier if you upload them in reverse order. click -save changes. click insert slideshow. nothing will appear on you edit post. but then if you click preview you will see your pictures. in another window. basic instruction or type slideshow in help..enjoy….;)

  9. Sometimes moving pictures are better than static ones. Really nice shots. Amazing that something so beautiful can come from something so sinister – storm clouds.

    1. Agree with you fully,treated with the respect they should, then can be so wondrous. Thank you for your lovely words and visit.. pop back any time…:)..

  10. I don’t mind slideshows at all, in fact, they’re kinda cool. And I can always pause them if I want to see a particular image for longer. Great shots here.

    1. Hey you are very welcome madman, I can remember it, it was pretty awesome, as the Americans might say. Some thing special… thank you..pop back…
