Those are heavy rain clouds over that hilly landscape. Strong photo.

I hope you weren't out walking in that to get the wonderful picture! It looks way rural, but I'm guessing it could just be on the outskirts of town. The colors in this photo are so vibrant. I come from the Rocky Mountains in the west, and love that look of rain falling on the mountains far away. I don't see that here in Appalachia on these shorter hills. One more thing to miss. =) Thanks for sharing this gorgeous picture.

Hello Taken for Granted. Summer seems delayed this year. It's much colder than usual and currently very wet.

Hello Susan. This is fifteen minutes drive from where I live. The hills are steep round here and the urban part stops abruptly and gives way to moorland. So if you have transport you can get 'remote' very quickly. The storm in the photo didn't arrive at my house - it stayed on the other side of the hill. But every so often, at present, we get very heavy downpours. For about ten minutes the rain batters the plants and runs fast in the gutters. Then stops. It's cold too. Where I was standing to take the photo it's called 'Cold Edge Road', Pretty appropriate! About 1,5000 feet above sea level. Nothing compared to the Rockies but high enough to limit what can grow there and impressive if you are driving up and up and up and up . . . .

I can't make the wind turbine connection. Are there some on your moors too?

Hello Chris. These humps and bumps, overgrown now with grass, are earth and rocks and general debris churned up and piled up and left behind when the nearby wind turbines were constructed.
