Rain clouds

The attached image was taken early yesterday morning. Dark clouds threatened to dump more rain on Santarém and the region, but by mid-morning the clouds had veered off to another area and we were treated to a day of sunshine. By midnight, it was raining again and it hasn't stopped. Out there where you see the Tapajós and Amazon Rivers covered with a blanket of black clouds, there's only a white haze. And the rain continues to fall.

Beautiful countryside, even with those dark forboding clouds. Skies like that make me think of the Midwestern US and tornadoes. I'm glad you're only seeing rain. Nice that you did have a day of sunshine, too.

I followed your link from Sandpiper and really found all the botanical posts very interesting.
