Beautiful photo highlighted by the sounds of the storm! 🙂
🙂 this one takes me back to Italy to the banks of lake Lugano at the reach of Switzerland. Thank you for your nice visit Linda. I am happy you like the photo and the music 🙂
Looks like a storm is coming! Nice shot Paula.
This summer we have had more than a fair share of storms throughout Europe. This one however, was captured last summer in Italy. Thank you, Colline 🙂
I wanted to share the following pictures with you Paula. I had to keep a little of the blue in so that you could see the image properly. Hope it is okay:

It’s been raining here daily for a while now, so this hits a chord Paula, and so does the music.
Wouldn’t want to be in one of those small boats in a storm. Great shot.
No, absolutely not. I have been on a sailboat during storm once (for work); not an experience I would recommend 😀 And thank you Draco. I am glad you like the pic 🙂
I think this is the calm before the storm. The water looks very soothing!
You are right, Emilio. There are no traces of a pending storm on the water surface yet 😀 Thank you for commenting 🙂
Lovely combination of sound and image. Your photo captures the darkening and the build-up, the boats catching the last slivers of light.
Being Australian, I love rain and enjoy presages of it (if that’s a word!) I even went through a car wash for the pleasure of pelting water when I lived in Broken Hill.
I like your choice of words, Meg :). Me too, I am quite fond of rain especially in summer time. Happy for your visit 🙂
Gorgeous photograph, Paula. Brilliant lighting and composition.
😀 Hello Uday 🙂 I have better pics, but what can I do. I wish you would see the one I posted last Sunday 😉 I am happy you have found the time to visit and comment my friend 🙂
There is something about heavy clouds just before a rainstorm. Great shot, Paula.
Many thanks, dear Lisa. 🙂

Little bit of bling! http://scrapydo.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/bling-the-weekend-in-black-and-white/
Your photo tells the story! Beautiful take!
It is cool S that you could read the story in it ;). I like your jewel a lot. You did a great job capturing it. Thank you!
Thank you I enjoyed it. Glad you liked the pendant too
Definitely looks ominous and I feel chilled just looking at this photo Paula. Well done.
😀 So you were able to feel it on your skin 😉 Thanks a bunch, Sue. Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
I see many beautiful photos on assorted posts but it is the ones that make me ‘feel’ something that stand out for me. Yours was one of those. 🙂

Great idea to add a sound track to your post. Like the other Australian who commented here I love rain though it can get a bit dreary down here in the south at this time of the year. Here’s my contribution to your challenge – http://artifactsandfictions.com/2014/08/24/the-dragons-blood-tree/
🙂 Thanks, Suzanne. You had me intrigued with your brilliant title and I have to say this tree looks spectacular. Many thanks for your participation.
You’re welcome 🙂 It was fun. Finding time to do the challenges is my issue – I’ll try and do yours more often. It’s fun.
Perfect B&W drama Paula!
Thank you kindly K 🙂 I have a flair for drama 😉

Interesting – photo and music pairing. It would be fun to ride in the boats, but not in that photo or when the storm rolled through.
You are absolutely right 🙂 Mountains around lake Lugano are a perfect backdrop for a boat ride 🙂

The rain is about to fall here too. We’ve been outside all day and just made it back home in time!
Here’s a black & white photo from y archives:
I hope you had a chance to take some pics while out too 🙂 Thank you for your offering CG 🙂
I shot quite a few photos, but haven’t had the time to look through them or work on them yet. It’s always good to have something to work on for those times when you don’t shoot that much.

LOVE a bit of drama! And heaven knows I’ve seen my share of stormy skies this past couple of weeks, Paula. The music is spectacular for this wonderfully atmospheric shot. I’ve just hopped over from Scrapydo and I love her image too- though it couldn’t be more different. Have to have a look at the others. You’ll get me black and whiting it yet 🙂 🙂
I can guarantee you will always be able to see drama in this blog :D. The music is by Alan Parsons Project, and it is wonderful agreed 🙂 Hugs
A very dramatic scene, Paula. The mood music suited it perfectly. 🙂
Just wonderful Paula and the music? Who is it? Woke me up?
Hello dear Kathryn. You have been enjoying Alan Parsons Project 🙂
I so forgot about him! Thanks for the awakening!

Now here’s an oddity … 🙂
Mi piace tanto…
Ciao cara Anna 🙂 E ancora la tua bella Italia – a Porlezza sul lago Lugano 🙂
😀 Penso o mesmo 😆 Muito obrigada 🙂
The moment before the light leaks right out of the sky, lovely.
Adore the inky blue in this gorgeous black and white Paula! Summer storms always make me want to run out and play in them, get drenched!
This is beautiful, amazing scenery and great conversion!
It looks deep blue, which i love, or is my monitor screwing with me?
Greetings, hope all is great, Ron.
😀 It is not screwing with you. I appreciate the compliment, Ron. All is well this end, just busy and bugged at work. How are you?
Ah, nice, love those dark blue monochromes!
Still working for same take-over?
Also busy, but good stuff: enjoying some traveling around…
Still in KL? Yes, the things are pretty dark at work, but I have to be optimistic for myself and believe that whatever happens I get to keep my job….
Stunning! Where is it?
In Italy, at Porlezza on lake Lugano very close to the border with Switzerland 🙂
Moody and dramatic! Well captured Paula.
🙂 I am happy to hear that Madhu. Thank you. Mountainscapes sunk into lakes are my favourite, and I always keep looking for similar spots.
I see a like option when i click on my notification Paula! You did say you had turned it off. Can you see one on my comment as well?
Yes, and I have just clicked it to prove the point. I am not fretting about it any more, but recently some changes have been introduced here that are not for the better.
🙂 I agree.
