Christmas Storm

As I said yesterday, we are using the planes, trains, and automobiles tactic to get to Edinburgh for the Hogmanay Festival tomorrow: 2 hr drive Naples-Rome, 3 hr flight Rome-Manchester, 4 hr train Manchester-Edinburgh… I will bring my iPad but probably won’t be posting.  I should have a bunch of new, fun images when I return to share with all of you!

After standing watch all night on Christmas Eve, I was rewarded with this lovely sunrise storm on Christmas Morning.  This was taken on my back porch/balcony around 8 AM this past Sunday.  Talk about awesome sleeping weather, after cooking all the Swedish Pancakes, I crashed for about 6 hours (after having been up for 24 hours straight!).  Enjoy!!

Thanks for the visit and Happy New Years!!

    Hope you have a great New Year in Edinburgh, all the best for 2012.

  15. Adam, A very moody sky and well captured. I made the Swedish pancakes according to your step by step and they were delish! Happy New Year to you!

  16. Marc Collins says:

    Gorgeous sunrise Adam. Hope you enjoy the ‘unique’ New Years festivities in Scotland!

  17. First of all, Happy New Year and have a great trip!

    I wish we have more dramatic cloud here in Arizona. We pretty much have 360 cloudless day here. Love the details of the pictures!

    BTW, you snow flakes make the pictures even better! :)

    Sorry, I seem to have missed your posts last few days. Hope you won’t get too wet in Edinburgh – it rains properly up there! This is a pretty good view to have from the back porch – a new image every day without leaving the house! Happy New Year.

    While most of us slept in, you were “on the job”. Great shot.
