Friday skywatch

View from my window
We had a major storm on Monday night with more powerful thunder and torrential rains than we've had in years... and Tuesday morning I woke up to THAT sky! I just had to step out on my rooftop terrace to take a few pictures. A few hours later the sky was a perfect blue... and in the afternoon, heavy clouds built up again towards a new storm the following night.
In the bottom right corner is the Popes' Palace, the magnificent 14th century fortified castle that makes my day every day when I look out my window.

On a eu un énorme orage dans la nuit de lundi avec un tonnerre violent et des torrents de pluie comme on n'en avait pas vu depuis longtemps... et le mardi matin j'ai trouvé CE CIEL à mon réveil. Je n'avais pas d'autre choix que de sauter sur ma terrasse pour prendre quelques photos. Quelques heures plus tard le ciel était parfaitement bleu mais dans l'après-midi il s'est chargé à nouveau et un autre orage est arrivé dans la nuit. Une météo perturbée !
Dans le coin inférieur droit remarquez le Palais des Papes, l'extraordinaire édifice du XIVe siècle qui m'éblouit tous les jours quand je regarde par ma fenêtre.
Today I'm participating in Skywatch Friday, a meme for growing community of bloggers who look up to the sky every Friday. Click here to see more amazing skies from around the world.

Bonjour! Nathalie...
Both photographs are very...beautiful!
I "love" to look up at a blue sky.
