The Sky Before I Ran Towards Shelter.
Taken At The Formula Drift 2009,Singapore.
That’s a beautiful story sky Elaine. I’m around today so I’ll enter your linky as usual. Cheers, Carver
The sky is really dramatically beautiful, but I guess the show has to stop for a while, eh?

That looks lie a really angry sky! Glad you got in before it fell!
and then it rained … wonderful moody sky!
It looks so humid to a desert dweller like me! Thank you for sharing.
Interesting and gloomy.
Great photo for sky watch friday full of all kinds of interesting things going on there. Thanks for sharing.
Amazing with this dark clouds!
Beautiful brooding skies!
Looks like rain coming. Better take cover.
Beautiful moody sky…
Very cool photo..
Very threatening sky.
I like skys like this, very dramamic… and it’s usually very windy and cooling for the photographer too 😉
Nice subject. Great shot.
Beautiful stormy skywatch shot.
I can imagine that you soon after were running for shelter.
That looks like doomsday came down 🙂
VERY ominous looking sky but they do make dramatic images
Re your question about if there is any significant meaning of the lizard art.
Lizards as the theme in decoration and art work is pretty wide spread in Nevada and other western desert states. I think it come partly from lizards being a common reptile here and also from the fact that they are often seen in ancient American Indian petroglyphs (rock art work). They were also a source of food for the Indians, so possibly that has something to do with it as well.
As I said, it is quite common to see lizard art work in states like Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Califonia, New Mexico, etc, that have large tracts of desert … they aresort of a symbol.
Quite impressive. I like how I am expecting a monochrome photo and am tickled by the bright colors at the bottom. Also this is a great page, with the professional-quality motorcycle shot (you must have a good long lens and be right there!) and the moody, misty stairs being superlative photos. You just get better and better, Elaine.
Dramatic ominous sky! I’ll bet the onlookers were grateful for a bit of protection.
Hugs and blessings,
Awesome sky images!
