6:20am, Saturday morning. Driving to work.
3:50pm, Saturday afternoon. Driving home from work.
I love the serenity and calmness of the first shot, yet in the second photo find a severity that is exciting: that ‘hand’ of the storm coming down from the heavens, ready to unleash some major damage on us mere mortals in a matter of moments.
Those ‘moments’ came in a massive downpour only 10 minutes later.
I like to appreciate the little things in the every day, and seeing the stark contrast between dawn and storm, going to and from work, is something small to look forward to.
Yes, even when it is a work day.
The scenery, set amongst the cold, grey freeway… just reminds us how much more powerful and vast Mother Nature is. No man-made structure can top her strength, influence and impact.
And again, the photo-taker on this day was my trusty in-car robot assistant… 😉
