Götterdämmerung


On Saturday evening, it was like Götterdämmerung or 'Twilight of the Gods' above the palace before torrential rain came down for a few minutes...
Samedi soir avant le violent orage, c'était comme le crépuscule des Dieux devant le château...

Serendipity! I love these kinds of shots...so dramatic.

Rather like the heavens are exploding!

Have a great week!

Un tres beau ciel d'orage avec ces rayons. On reconnait les silhouettes de l'exposition Bernar Venet dont tes photos du 3 juin sont superbes.

Gorgeous sky. I expect to see a chariot with white horses coming out of the brightness. Nice music too :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Its been so long since I've posted I didn't know anyone even checked any more.

In spite of the heavens opening, I see my french fries are intact :-)

Lucky you, I wish we would get rain but I wish that rain would fall on the fires in Arizona. I feel for the people evacuated because of it.

Great title for a wonderful image.

la premiere photo est superbe, surtout avec la statue au fond qui nous montre le chemin pour quitter cet enfer. La meme chose ici, mais sans chateau ;)

Superbe cette photo! Pleine de symboles.
J'espère que les feux rouges sont tombés au bon moment pour toi.

Wow, look at those lights flashing through the clouds! Fantastic!

Your first shot is wonderful, Ciel. I know that you have been worried about the absence of rain recently, so I am glad it finally came.

It seems the Gods are angry, a terrible storm caused a lot of damage in Beja, a city in the south, yesterday... Actually it looks like someone moved this country into the tropics! Great capture, Ciel.

It's good for the plants!

Lovely sky. Rain is always nice - unless it carries sand with it :(

Birdman said...

Wow! Exciting shot to say the least.

Stephanie said...

Beautiful. Glad you had some rain. We are still in a drought. Everything is turning brown.
