SKYWATCH FRIDAY – Storm on the Michigan Side (Lake Erie)


Looking across the lake, I can always see the weather over parts of both Michigan and Ohio. The storm in the top photo, in the far west corner of the horizon, was raining down over some counties in Michigan. Further along to the east (bottom) it sky is still clear over Sandusky, Ohio. It looks like it’s rained here in Leamington, too—the breakwall parapet is wet and shining—but that’s just from waves splashing over.

I always love to see Buddha looking out over the water and enjoying everything he sees -- like the storm clouds of today! Marvelous shot, Deborah! I also love being able to see the splash of the waves, almost every droplet of water! Terrific!
Have a great weekend!

Beautiful picture looking toward Michigan, Deb... I love seeing the rain over the water like that (as long as it is not a 'water spout'... ha

Thanks for a beautiful skywatch and WATER photo.
Hugs,
Betsy

I wish I could hear those waves splashing; somehow looks very peaceful.

Thank you for letting me visit your part of the world. We must look at a lot of the same blogs (not just for Skywatch) because I see your name a lot! Thanks for sharing.

That is so neat. You can just run outdoors and check the weather. I haven't this shot of your waterfront before. It is beautiful.

Really like that first shot of the rain and splashes. Nice captures.

I think it must be nice to live on such a big lake. Looks like your statue is enjoying the view!

There's something about watching a storm brewing way out on the horizon.

I see a Buddha gazing over the water! A visual haiku.

Terrific capture of the far off weather. I have to echo Sylvia - love that we're looking through the breaking water splashes out across the water. Great shot!

Very cool shots. I can see where it is raining. We always say "well it looks like they are having some weather over there". Funny, huh! MB
