Here in Ireland we are hunkering down waiting for Ophelia to make landfall, so I’m going with a stormy theme this week, starting off with this shot of a storm moving in over Jamaica Bay Wildlife Reserve in New York.
The daily Xocomil windstorm starting to kick off over Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
Sandstorm at Coney Island.
Rainstorm over the Cascades.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. – John Muir
Disappointments are to the soul what a thunderstorm is to the air. – Friedrich Schiller
