The Splendour that comes after...





A furious storm raged in yesterday...it left incredibly soon though.

We left home for a dinner date after the storm, pleased to be greeted by these furballs in the sky. I've always thought that sky after storm is amazing...

And thankfully, the Lilies are well shielded from the storm.

Was it the rain? They actually smelt more alluring than usual...

Love this froggie, it stood so still like a mellowed fella and its size probably a mere mass of my thumb. It reminded me of Kermit the Frog from ' Muppet Show ' and ' Sesame Street '... I would have sent its cute butt up to my header if not for the picture below has been so blurred. =P

And the symphony of the sky began, in magnificient splendour. Art supreme depicted by His sovereign Hands... I truly can find no words to describe God's wondrous works...

As if still brewing in fury unappeased, the sky unfolded into layers of intensity, with rolling clouds and scratching lightning. Those infamous paintings in European churches must have been undoubtedly inspired by the one true Painter.

The streak of pink high above,

I love this though my hand shook.

As the colors ebbed away, we realized that we were heading a late dinner date, but our souls filled and satisfied. We couldn't thank God enough for the incredible granduer revealed before our eyes...

May your week be a splendid one bursting in colors of joy. God bless...

Wow! Wonderful pics. What camera do you use?? I cant seem to get pictures with the correct exposure or apeture or whatever you call them. Of course, my camera is one of those idiot proof ones.

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
昨日の大雨は、各地に、悲しい出来事を、
残して、私は、悲しいです。

だけど、自然は、私達に、美しいユリや、
空、カエルの合唱を聴かせてくれ、
心を癒してくれますね。
赤のコントラストが、美しい空、
そして、田んぼに反射する、光も、いい目線です。
雨風の中の撮影、すごかったのでは?!
だけど、私も神様に感謝したくなります。

PS.淡路夢舞台のことですが、明石海峡大橋の架橋
 イベントとして、花博が、淡路島で開かれたのです。
 その後、この場所を、淡路夢舞台として、解放されて いるのです。
 あんまし、がっかりしないであげてね。
 日本は、狭いけど、多くの事があるからね。

すばらしい、神のみわざを、教えてくれたスターダストさんに、感謝します8-O

Stunning beauty! AWESOME images that leave me in peaceful repose. What a gift it must be to witness these these moments when the Master craftsman reveals his handiwork! Thanks for sharing your gift of beauty, vision, photography & words. The frog is just TOO darn cute! I didn't know God made them in that size ;-)

Many blessings, my friend!
