Storms around the causeway - My World Tuesday

Storms were moving into the Tampa area a few weeks ago.

I took this on my way home from work from a parking deck on Rocky Point island.

Typical of Florida, it was raining across the bay but not where I was.

Skimmers were hanging out in the parking lot on Rocky Point island.

Looks like these laughing gulls were settling in for the night.
Just a few weeks ago we were getting storms every day late in the afternoon. Even in late September.  I had my camera in the car and was ready to go to a park after work but the storms looked bad. On my way home though, it looked like it might clear up. I stopped on the Courtney Campbell causeway and shot a few pictures before the sun went down. This was the last big storm since then.

  3. Thanks Lyndsey! These were taken over 2 weeks ago. We haven't gotten a drop since. I think this was the last of the summer storms. Now I miss them.

  4. Great shots, and very dramatic skies! I love the gulls shot...and the sunset. So pretty...

  5. This is a wonderful series of photos. The clouds and weather seemed to cooperate and give you a chance to capture these beautiful moments. Thanks for sharing.
