SkyWatch: Heavenly thunderstorm!



Go visit SkyWatch for more photos of the sky!


As some of you know, we had a furious rain/thunderstorm over Oslo some days ago. We had about 2000 lightnings in Oslo during a few hours. And then, when it was all over, the sky awarded us with a beautiful sunset. Both storm and sunset was quite stunning, don't you think?

Praktfull bildeserie av en spektakulær himmel. Nydelig! Nå håper jeg bare sommeren kan komme tilbake igjen :)

RuneE sa...

Nydelige bilder, men du skulle flyttet ut her til de ytterste øyer - her har vi knapt hatt noe.

Regina sa...

Great wonders. I like all of the snapshots. Wonderful.

Lara sa...

Fantastiske bilder av himmelen.Flott lys over byen på det første bildet,og på det siste var himmelen utrolig vakker.
Ha en fin sommerkveld.

Svein sa...

Dramatiske himmel-scener du har fanget her!

Audun sa...

Flotte bilder du har her. Det mest fasinerende den kvelden var at her, noen mil lenger nord merket vi ikke noe til dette været

Leora sa...

Love the top shot of your city with the sky. How amazing. And the bottom one is just heaven on earth.

Our skies in New Jersey seem dull in comparison. Maybe it's the far north skies that really amaze me, because I love the Canadian skies also.

Dagrun sa...

Så flotte bilder. Jeg elsker det siste! Fantastisk lys!

Vi hadde jo litt sånt vær her på SUnnmøre, men jeg klarte jo overhode ikkeå fange det. Alt ble bare kjærringråååsa.

Sier som RuneE - nydelige bilder!
Dramatisk og vakkert.

Stemmer i med RuneE enda en gang også, jeg. Bor nemlig ikke så langt fra han. Vi har ikke hatt mye regn den siste måneden. Det er etterlengtet etterhvert!

Val, you must be in a good spot! The first one shows the city's high rise. The clouds are bursting, and I could hear the thunderous clap! All photos are very crisp and clear.

Babooshka sa...

Heavenly skies can be hellish when the thunderstorm strikes but gorgeous to look at like these.

Prospero sa...

Thunderclouds of unimaginable beauty, Valkyrien.

B SQUARED sa...

I wonder why it is always so beautiful after a storm?

Tammie Lee sa...

Beautiful sunset indeed and gorgeous photos of it!

SandyCarlson sa...

This record of the changing skies is outstanding. The drama. I felt I was drowning in the first one. The light through the clouds suggests hope. May the light come and stay a while.

Guy D sa...

Your photography never disappoints, these are all incredible.

Have a great weekend.

slim sa...

Yes, stunning . . . an you caught it . . . well done.

Linnea W sa...

I'm so jealous! You have had amazing weather and skies! Can I trade you some of our ever blue Californian skies for a little bit of what's going on overhead in your neighborhood!?

diane sa...

A great series of shots. I love the storm clouds over the city. Always love your pics.

Petit Eyekiss sa...

Vilken dramatik!Fantastiska bilder!

The first one is absolutely scary - the clouds about to eat up Oslo. I'm glad the story has a happy ending!

mkreider sa...

Great photos. The first one reminds me of "Close Encounters". Such fine colors.

Hei hei. Kom tilfeldigvis innom bloggen din via en interiørblogg, og jett om jeg ble imponert!!!
For noen fantastisk flotte bilder. Virkelig vakre. Ønsker deg en god helg. Klæm Susanne

Linda, foto sa...

Tack för att du röstade! Bilden på fjärilen fick lite högre betyg efter det där inlägget, men nu har den sjunkit igen och har lägre betyg än från början...

Otroligt snygga bilder! Den nedersta är helt underbar!

Pacey sa...

Whoa! what a great great shot, the brewing storm made for wonderful photos. Excellent Val.

Arija sa...

These are all wonderful, but that heavy pregnant cloud hanging ove the town and the glorious sun blszing out through the last are fabulous.

That looks like quite the boiling mad storm!

Sara Chapman sa...

That top one is gorgeous and terrifying also. Very beautiful skies photos.

WOW !!! Awesome skies!!

Those colours are spectacular as is the way you have captured the light..

You could almost imagine a UFO appearing out of the clouds in that top photo.. :-)

Pacey sa...

What a wonderful sky shot here, how could I've missed this, huhuhu...Very rare cloud formation.

Marius sa...

Det er kun en ting å si: FANTASTISK!!!
