Ciel de juillet 2012

This is what the sky has been like most of July so far, when it wasn't grey-white. It is a look at the palace Orangerie from below.

Voici à quoi a généralement ressemblé le ciel de juillet jusqu'ici cette année, quand il n'était pas gris-blanc. C'est l'orangerie du château vue de la route de Saint-Cyr l'Ecole.

l'avantage c'est que cela fait un beau ciel, et ca rend bien en photo

Tanya said...

our sky looked like that this afternoon...lots of rain, thunder and lightning...now the sun is shining!

It looks moody and beautiful! Unlike our dull, grey, overcast clouds (though our sun came back too).

Super photo, Ciel. I do hope the weather improves for you soon.

Beautiful photo of an ominous sky.

Darryl and Ruth :)

Randy said...

Our looked just like that today. I like the sunlight in this shot.

The global weather patterns this year are bizarre and fascinating. We have become a burning desert. The Mississippi may reach its lowest water level since records have been kept.

Meghan said...

At least it looks like the sun is trying to come out. I hope it clears up for you soon!

Michelle said...

I do hope your weather improves. We are having quite a thunderstorm as I type this!

Jack said...

You are having a lost month, it seems. The middle and east of the USA has been having a heat wave, but it broke this afternoon with clouds like this, followed by thunder and lightning and heavy rain. We should have blue skies and normal temperatures tomorrow. I can hardly wait!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, looks like Seattle and particularly tonight!! I have to admit though I do love our cooler temps!! So much of the US is sweltering -- as Jack has written!! Have good tomorrow, Ciel!!

je trouve que tu as beaucoup de lumière

Malyss said...

dramatic, mais tellement photogenique!

Dianne said...

I hope the sun soon shines for you Ciel ... the moody skies complement the lovely old architecture.

VP said...

I would really like some of that sky over here...

Cezar and Léia said...

C'est dommage que tu n'as pas encore eu un vrai ete. Je serai plus que contente d'exchanger un peu de notre chaleur pour ton pluie. Mais juste un peu ! :)

I do see a little blue up there! Nice composition. Perhaps you're going to have to wait 'til August before the nice weather sets in?

We've had gorgeous weather, unseasonably cool; June and July are normally quite hot, but I can't remember a July as nice as this. Of course, we get thunderstorms most afternoons which helps to cool things down even if they are rather scary and sometimes bring tornadoes with them.

crazy weather. here it is so hot we are drained of energy.

Birdman said...

The composition here excites me.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I agree with Birdman Ciel, I'm sorry about your weather, but this shot is dramatic to the max! The sun will have to come soon I'm very sure.

Thérèse said...

Le rayon de soleil d'hier n'a donc pas duré. Il faudrait penser à le mettre dans ta poche la prochaine fois que tu en croises un.
Ta photo par contre rend bien grâce à ce manque de soleil justement.

Loree said...

What a dramatic looking sky!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Well, it could be worse. It was 41C Rehoboth Beach yesterday! Hang in there, better sky's are coming!

Love the warm light contrasting to the menacing sky.
