Stormy Evening in Prescott Park

The threat of rain seemed to hang around for a while in the late afternoon today.  There were some seriously intense clouds out over New Castle as I walked around Prescott Park, and I even saw some streaks of lighting touch down. Somehow, I managed not to get caught out in any rain before heading to a meeting at City Hall…and when I arrived, the sky was gorgeous and intense, as the sun was breaking through a portion of the cloud ceiling and the ominous clouds hung overhead.

Above is a shot of the storm looming behind the public docks out over New Castle and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as seen from the Joe Sawtelle Pier in Prescott Park.  Below is a view of the park from the public docks…with some cyclists seen underneath the trees (trying to decide whether to head out for a ride or not – they did).
