Stormy Skies

I was out the other day in the changeable weather we've been having, and managed to get a few shots of tumultuous skies above the Cotswold landscape. 

I had to dodge a few rain showers, and it was a case of grabbing the shots when I could, but with such volatile conditions it was worth the effort, as they can produce some interesting results.

These very dramatic clouds work well with the fresh green field below.

With a slight break in the weather some blue sky was visible above this yellow wheat field.

A field of green crops under a threatening sky, needless to say,
it chucked it down a few minutes later.

A single tree sits in a mature rape field under some lovely white clouds.

You can view this same tree when the rape field was in flower, and under some stormy skies of it's own, right here.

Hopefully we'll continue to have a few more days of shifting weather patterns, as they often produce some very dramatic images, and assuming you have some waterproofs or are rather light of foot, it's well worth getting out there and seeing what the sky throws together.
