In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lion

Personal

I don’t know how far reaching it was, but last Sunday’s weather here in Narberth was spectacular! I heard that it reached into Philly, Drexel Hill, Havertown, Moorestown, and parts of New Jersey.

I had taken Emma out for a walk and couldn’t help but notice that the sky was this crazy peach and smokey blue. I came home and switched out Emma for my camera to photograph it. The sky really did look smokey.




The clouds were insane depending on which direction you looked. This was the view from by back porch.


Not five minutes after returning, we heard this quick spattering on the roof. Emma and I ran to the window to see hail coming down and pinging off every surface. It was so fast and heavy. I opened my back door to get some pictures and Emma got to clean up all the renegade hail stones that came flying in.


It let up no more than ten minutes later. Of course I had to run out and take pictures of the results.






My front yard:

The back driveway… The water was beginning to make rivers and wash up the hail stones. I swear it looked like cherry blossom petals everywhere.


The sky changed dramatically to a fantastic blue with big puffy clouds.


Here is the before and after of the same tree (different angles).


Pennsylvania may have bitterly cold winters and sweltering summers, but California has nothing on this!

The summer? Bah! That was nothing compared to what’s coming this fall. Hold on to your hats because there is a world of Lindsay Docherty Photography coming at you over the next few months. My mind is spinning and it’s hardly begun yet. This is my last totally wedding/engagement session - free weekend til December (yes, December!) so I’m taking a wee trip. I’ll be incommunicado til Wednesday because I’ll be paddling down the Delaware River for the next few days. “My, Lindsay, I had no idea you kayaked,” you say. Well, that’s because I haven’t. It will certainly be an adventure and will likely hurt. But I’m one tough cookie. I am und ...
