I know I've mentioned this in previous posts somewhere. For as long as I can remember I've been obsessed with astronomy and the sky. Don't we all yearn for freedom? Expansion? For limitless possibilities, dreams, wishes? For me, the sky is a total visual representation of all of the above! With that, we had a really soothing, sexy, summer thunderstorm here in NYC a few hours ago. When it ended, the sky just opened up and revealed all sorts of rare beauty. Including gorgeous cumulus clouds and vertical cumulonimbus clouds, typically seen after a powerful thunder and lightening storm. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and headed outside. All photographs were taken in Queens, NY.
