New Mexico Storm

A few weeks ago I was driving back home from Santa Fe.  The sky was dark but amongst the clouds some sun would shine through.  I was amazed at how eerie and beautiful it was as the same time.   Lately my mood has been the same way.  Sometimes full of sunshine and then an unexpected cloud would roll in.  I'd like to think I'm an optimist at heart but sometimes doubt takes over and I feel myself being drawn into the darkness.

I had to pull over a take a photo.  Unfortunately I didn't have my nice little camera with me so I took this with my phone.  I was totally gobsmacked (a shoutout to all my UK friends) by how amazing it came out. 
How about you?  What do you feel when looking at this photo?  

Peace,
Kay

Hi Kay sounds as though you are having a troublesome time at the moment? Hope that it keeps getting better. The photo is stunning. It's strange but I've just been outside and taken one of a stunning sunset here. My camera is not fancy so doesn't do it justice. It's on my facebook page - must put it on my blog. Anne x

I think that no matter how dark the clouds, there is always a silver lining at some point.
Sending big hugs to you....

WOW - wonderful and definitely a gobsmacked moment. (having a small operation tomorrow, got butterflies in my tummy and tinnitus in my ears now, what am I like?) BJ

I feel a need to visit New Mexico. There's magic in that sky. There's a peaceful chaos calling out to me. I need a trip to Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos.
I think what you are feeling is the unrest of Mother Nature. She is anxious. There is a magic in the area you live so you will feel it stronger than most. Your moods are not your moods. . . they are the moods of the Earth. I will keep you in my thoughts this month.

Well it made me smile, gorgeous photo . Like you I am having to remind myself to smile I don't know your reasons mine is the 'big M' a hideous time of like. But there is light at the end of the tunnel if you keep smiling
Take care my friend

I always find peace in the sky. I am always amazed at the range of color and how unsettled it can become only to calm and be so peaceful! It is truly Gods magic!

Stunning photo! You're a marvy photographer. And I laughed at you picking up that Brit lingo. I catch myself wanting to use words like that from time to time (whilst, amongst, etc). Hope the rest of last week went ok for you. Had you on my mind. I understand your analogy of going from light to dark, and back again. Don't get disheartened. It's going to come out just the way it's meant to! Hang touch, and know that many folks are thinking of you, saying a prayer too. TFS & Hugs

Hi Kay, well, first of all that is one amazing photo. To me it looks like a very depressed time, that is about to change. See the hint of sunshine coming through the clouds, that to me says everything is going to be fine. Maybe when you start to feel a dark mood coming on, you should look at this photo and remember that everything is going to be alright. You are in my prayers.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

wow, I'd be gobsmacked and chuffed that it came out so beautifully!! Traditional camera will be a thing of the past soon. I hope you are doing well, I don't see much of you any more! (((hugs))) waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

New Mexico weather is insane when it opts for a storm. I also can't get over how it is windy. Every. Single. Time. I go there. Gorgeous picture. We're finally getting our monsoons here. whoo hoo!

AMAZING photo Kay! I'm with Jan - this said to me that no matter how dark things might seem, the sun is always there waiting.

I must show this to Len when he gets back from archery today - it sums up one of our very favourite places.

Hugs, Di xx

I look at this picture and realize how much I miss New Mexico. I left 27 years ago and cried all the way to California. I want to go back now. Maybe soon, who knows what the future brings. Thank you for sharing Kay. Now I need a tissue. Hugs, Robin
