The Rains

I believe I have already posted these pictures of when the sky was half light and half dark. Do you see the profile of a face here?


But what I didn't post was what came right after. The rains in the distance. My mom could smell rain coming. Can you?


“There’s an element of suspense in the air. The air is charged and dense… There’s always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down.”

Yes I do see the profile. It has a rather pointy nose :)
I don't know if I can smell rain coming but I think there is a certain scent in the air when it is raining and after.

Sometimes I can smell rain coming...if the land is really parched.

Great cloud images, but didn't see the face.

I see the face. I don't know that I can smell rain, but I get a migraine about 12 hours usually before it begins so I am fully aware that it is coming. It is amazing to me as I grow older how much the weather truly affects how I feel.

I did not see the profile till you mentioned it...I think I used to could smell rain. What I miss is in Tennessee where we lived, we could hear the rain coming.

Yes, I can see the face in the 1st picture. Sometimes I can sort of smell the rain before it comes. Yes, there is an element of suspense just as quoted.

When I was growing up on a farm in the Mid-West, I could often smell rain coming. I haven't noticed that here in Tennessee.

Oh yes, I can see the face! Sky makes very interesting pictures. I'm not sure if I have smelled rain coming, but I certainly smell when it's raining. And I love the smell of rain :-)
