From my Window: Heavy Storm in Barcelona

Stormy clouds, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

Apocalyptic weather, ominous skies, gusty winds with hail hitting on windows, branches violently torn off  nearby trees and hundreds of calls for help received at the fire department. It all took but one hour although it seemed like a cyclone or the arrival of a tornado. I was afraid the window pane got broken or something. I even saw a pigeon caught in mid air by the winds fighting its way to the nearest cornice unsuccessfully. And suddenly the heavy rains ceased and the sun appeared joyfully amidst the scurrying clouds. Too extreme weather for this part of the world I guess. Here is another example caught from my window in the past.


  1. Looks like someone is in for some rough weather, nice drama here.

  2. that is freaky looking

  3. Do you ever license your images for inclusion in print pieces?

  4. Wow. Beautiful sky. I bet that was quite a storm.

  5. That storm would have scared me. On the left it really was trying to be a tornado. I am glad it passed over quickly, Carlos.
